The proposal will develop an app for screening memory function in elderly people concerned about declining cognition. It uses a simple word-pairing test that has demonstrated sensitivity and specificity in detecting prodromal Alzheimer's disease. The app will be built following a model developed by Frankl Open Science, a Sydney-based blockchain start-up. It will incorporate key features that facilitate and incentivise open science and FAIR data sharing. In addition to its immediate clinical and scientific benefits, the application will serve as a working example for a new way of conducting open research.
