The dataset was created by Athanasios Tsanas (tsanasthanasis '@' gmail.com) and Max Little (littlem '@' physics.ox.ac.uk) of the University of Oxford, in collaboration with 10 medical centers in the US and Intel Corporation who developed the telemonitoring device to record the speech signals. The original study used a range of linear and nonlinear regression methods to predict the clinician's Parkinson's disease symptom score on the UPDRS scale.
