Toward Estimating Personal Well- Being Using Voice

Abstract: Estimating personal well-being draws increasing attention particularly from healthcare and pharmaceutical industries. We propose an approach to estimate personal well-being in terms of various measurements such as anxiety, sleep quality and mood using voice. With clinically validated questionnaires to score those measurements in a self-assessed way, we extract salient features from voice and train regression models with deep neural networks. Experiments with the collected database of 219 subjects show promising results in predicting the well-being related measurements; concordance correlation coefficients (CCC) between self-assessed scores and predicted scores are 0.41 for anxiety, 0.44 for sleep quality and 0.38 for mood.
