Using artificial intelligence to overcome mental health stigma

Artificial intelligence

Researchers from University of Tsukuba have developed an artificial intelligence system that identified signs of mental distress in workers using only sociodemographic, lifestyle, and sleep data. The predictions made by the system were comparable to those made by a team of psychiatrists. Such systems may be helpful for identifying signs of depression in individuals who may be hesitant to report subjective feelings of distress as a result of mental health stigma.
