This post is part of a blog series with Young Scientists ahead of the Annual Meeting of the New Champions 2015, which takes place in Dalian, China, from 9-11 September. In this blog, Carnegie Mellon University’s Louis-Philippe Morency talks about his research into how artificial intelligence can help us recognize mental health conditions such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.
How’s life at the intersection of artificial intelligence and healthcare?
It’s very exciting right now. The area I’m most interested in is how we can use computer science to help clinicians and healthcare providers recognize mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder through the non-verbal communication of the patient. We call this multimodal machine learning.
This seems like a long term goal: how close are we?
