PsychEng Seminar Reservation: Prof. Jonathan Rose and Daniel Di Matteo – Using Behaviour to Measure Aspects of Mental Health

Prof. Jonathan Rose and Daniel Di Matteo (Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Toronto)

Using Behaviour to Measure Aspects of Mental Health

We will describe two on-going projects that use two different ways to observe behaviour of people as a way to infer aspects of their mental health. The first method collects behaviour passively by recording a number of things from the subjects’ smartphone: their location, screen activity, motion, ambient light and samples of the ambient sound. We will discuss our first steps towards collecting and processing this information, and correlation with several common psychiatric scales. The second method is to have subjects play a game that evokes uncertainty, and to see if the subject’s behaviour in the game correlates with their ‘Intolerance of Uncertainty’ scale.
