S3 Depression Detection App
S3 Collaborative Grant is awarded to Trifecta leaders for the development of an intelligent audio journal smartphone application for depression detection.
Principal Investigator, Mi Zhang, PhD (EGR) will be supported by Shelia R. Cotten, PhD (CAS) and Andrea K. Wittenborn, PhD (HDFS) to develop this new tool.
“Talking or writing about stressful events in journal entries is a useful method for individuals to process traumas and stress. This project will harness the ubiquitously available smartphone as a platform to develop an intelligent audio journal app. The app will use a linguistic analysis framework to analyze an individual’s journal entry to detect depression. This app could provide a valuable assessment and intervention tool for depression,” says Zhang.
