BEIJING -- Chinese artificial intelligence startup Voice Health Tech has started a joint project with a group of researchers led by Yue Weihua, a professor at Peking University Sixth Hospital, on the use of speech for depression screening and evaluation.

The project has now entered the clinical research stage. In November 2022, the team published a clinical research paper in Frontiers in Psychiatry, an international medical journal.
