About Winterlight Labs

We want to improve the lives of people with dementia and psychiatric illness. To do this, we’re building better, more sensitive tools that will allow us to track, screen for and predict the onset of these diseases more accurately.

Winterlight Labs was founded in 2015 in Toronto, Canada by Frank Rudzicz, Katie Fraser, Liam Kaufman and Maria Yancheva. Our team of experts specializes in computational linguistics, cognitive neuroscience, and machine learning. We have developed a proprietary, tablet-based technology that assesses cognitive health (including memory, thinking, and reasoning) by analysing hundreds of language markers from short snippets of speech.
