Leveraging Technology to Enhance Mental Health Assessment (TIPS 2017)

Recent advances in computing now allow us to measure aspects of behavior and physiology that would not have been feasible even a handful of years ago. This panel showcases some examples of cutting-edge tools for understanding the brain and behavior that are low cost and scalable towards a future of “digital diagnostics” that can be leveraged to increase the accessibility and impact of mental health services.

This talk was part of the 2017 Technology in Psychiatry Summit, sponsored by the McLean Institute for Technology in Psychiatry on November 6-7, 2017, at the JB Martin Conference Center, Harvard Medical School. Part of panel on Digital Diagnostics: Leveraging Technology to Enhance Mental Health Assessment.

Louis-Philippe Morency, PhD, is faculty at the Carnegie Mellon University Language Technology Institute where he leads the Multimodal Communication and Machine Learning Laboratory. His research focuses on building the computational foundations to enable computers with the abilities to analyze, recognize, and predict subtle human communicative behaviors during social interactions.
