Practical applications of and learnings from machine learning in child & adolescent psychiatry and psychology.

We have invited international and local experts who have applied machine learning techniques to study human behavior to present their work.

Topics include, but are not​​​ limited to:

  • a therapist feedback tool based on speech signals and natural language processing
  • motion energy analysis for estimating coordinated movement as a marker of therapeutic alliance
  • physiological synchrony as a marker of social behavior
  • study design of microtrials

We will discuss how these techniques can be applied to advance research and clinical work within child and adolescent psychiatry and psychology.

Our research group will present findings from our high risk, high gain pilot study which uses speech, visual, and physiological signals from a wearable biosensor to detect episodes of distress related to youth with obsessive compulsive behavior and their parents.
