Can we predict Depression & Bipolar Disorder through Feed Forward Neural Networks using MADRS survey and activity sensor data?

Started Feb. 28, 2022

Abstract or project description

We hope to give people an accessible and accurate diagnostic tool for mood disorders. This research matters because depression and other mood disorders are global issues that deserve attention & support. We combine survey & sensor data to make predictions about multiple mental health outcomes. We use Machine Learning approaches (i.e. feedforward & recurrent networks) to create a diagnostic tool for mood disorders. We hope to give people an accessible and accurate diagnostic tool for mood disorders and help them get the help they need.
