AI growing in emotional intelligence, helping diagnose mental disorders…


our feelings are often hard to describe
or quantify as they’re a subjective state of being but with artificial
intelligence continue to evolve in an ever rapid pace scientists are working
on state-of-the-art treatments that can improve our emotional well-being using
these machine learning deep learning artificial intelligence our Oh Sooyoung
has part three of our special series human emotions can be difficult to read
but this artificial intelligence program and the noises facial expressions to
provide a snapshot of a person’s mental well-being multa sense detects various
facial and vocal attributes including I gaze eyebrow movement and intonation
using computer vision language processing and other algorithms through
a five to ten minute interview with a doctor or a virtual human the program
can provide insights to help doctors diagnose their patients we reach this
initial stage which was we wanted to know is this is it possible do we see
behavior markers can computer quantify and the good news as we’ve seen many of
them we have now the exact count I forgot exactly by about 25 of these
behavior markers for depression for anxiety anxiety for PTSD and Ivan for
suicidal ideation and for psychosis using AI to detect and analyze human
emotions as an itch field called affective computing that’s expected to
grow into a forty billion dollar market by 2022 growing at an average pace of 43
percent a year the possibilities range from new tracking apps and mental
wellness chatbots to learning tools for children with
autism to help them develop emotional intelligence brain need technologies for
instance helps children with autism or ADHD to improve their concentration
through computer games I gaze detectors determine the level of focus
so being able to pay attention to things in their periphery and shift attention
appropriately that’s about a 35% improvement and inhibitory control there
is actually a 65% improvement and that’s the skill that’s going to allow them to
stay focused on whatever they’re working on without getting easily distracted by
other things going on around them adding AI to the equation with help
customized attention and harnessing activities for each individual allowing
meaningful progress wearable devices powered by AI are also providing
something of a sixth sense a smart wristband developed by an MIT spin-off
helps users regulate their mood by adjusting their body temperature and the
differential from that how much we should deliver in terms of those on-off
sensations to maintain that perception of cooling and warming as AI continues
to evolve not only in terms of simple intelligence but also human
sensibilities it could help us become smarter and more mindful of our
emotional well-being what’s your imagined news Pittsburgh
