The new standard for assessing wellness.


Our Mission

We're bringing healthcare into the digital era using voice AI, replacing subjective measurements with objective, actionable data.

We believe in scaleable, data-driven insight into health - building smarter, more accessible, and more accurate care. Our goal is to improve both quality of care, and quality of life.

Canary's patented technology screens for mood, stress, and energy levels using a single 20-second audio clip. We're bringing seamless, non-invasive healthcare screening to every patient who needs it, everywhere.

Proactive screening and assessments for earlier and more effective treatment.

Data-based solutions and machine learning for quantifiable, actionable healthcare data.

Truly borderless wellness. Language-agnostic and device-agnostic, Canary powers global solutions.

Non-invasive audio collection for comfortable, stress-free analysis anytime, anywhere.

Our Story

Co-founders Henry O’Connell and Jeff Adams are two of speech and language technology’s most recognizable figures.

Their combined expertise in neurology research and speech technology – Henry at the National Institutes of Health, and Jeff leading Amazon Alexa’s founding speech AI team – drove them to explore the applications of speech technology in medicine. Speech and wellness are interwoven; vocal features reveal both emotional and physiological states. Henry and Jeff’s research into modeling these features and applying voice technology to healthcare built the framework for Canary Speech. 

Nearly a decade later, Canary Speech holds three US patents and two European patents, and has been awarded more patents than any existing speech AI company.


Why Canary?

In the early 1900s, long before digital readers existed, canaries were used in coal mines to detect life-threatening levels of toxic gases. Miners would bring caged canaries into the tunnels with them. If carbon monoxide or other dangerous gases were present – colorless, odorless, and undetectable—they would sicken the birds before the miners were affected. Canaries served as a signal for the miners to immediately exit the tunnels to safety.

At Canary Speech, vocal biomarkers are our signal—giving voice to previously silent health conditions earlier and more precisely. We believe in the power of preventive care and actionable, data-driven insight into invisible illnesses like anxiety, depression, and dementia.

Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion in Vocal Biomarker Data

At Canary Speech, we recognize the importance of diverse data representation in advancing the field of digital vocal biomarkers. Our mission is to develop technologies that accurately reflect and serve all individuals, regardless of race, gender, age or background.

We are committed to inclusivity and equity in our research and data collection practices. To this end, we actively gather and analyze vocal data from a wide spectrum of voices. By ensuring our datasets are representative of the diverse populations we aim to serve, we can improve the reliability, precision, and applicability of our vocal biomarker solutions across various demographics.

Our dedication to diversity and inclusion is not just a foundational value but a strategic imperative. By embracing the full breadth of human diversity, Canary Speech strives to deliver health insights and advancements that are truly universal and beneficial for everyone.

Together, we are building a future where the power of vocal biomarkers can be harnessed to improve health outcomes for all communities.
