Satra Ghosh on Vocal Biomarkers of Mental Health (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 showcased some examples of cutting edge tools for understanding the brain and behavior that are low cost and scalable toward 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 Digital Diagnostics: Leveraging Technology to Enhance Mental Health Assessment.
