Title: Mental health digital phenotyping research within CIS
The ubiquitous usage of smartphones, wearables, and the Internet (particularly social media/networking) has created what is termed our 'digital footprint' or our 'data exhaust'. An individual's digital footprint is basically the data records they create resulting from their interactions with the Internet and personal digital devices such as smartphones. The fact that an individual's digital footprint could be used to infer their behaviours, preferences and mental states opens the possibility of using such a process to gain insights into their mental health, insights of clinical value that could be used to anticipate mental ill-health and also inform treatment. At the intersection of the computing, data and behavioural sciences, this process of learning about an individual's psychology from their digital footprint has been termed 'digital phenotyping'.
In this presentation I will go over some work on digital phenotyping that is happening within the University of Melbourne's School of Computing and Information Systems (CIS).
To ensure we are inclusive, and to account for the different time zones covered by the ICTDH, all seminars will be recorded and made available to those who register to attend the seminar.
