What if A.I. could monitor your loved ones and warn you IN ADVANCE of symptoms of depression?
A local start-up called mind.me is attracting top-notch expertise. The application-based health monitor will use artificial intelligence to manage and predict mental illness, including depression. The app stays passive in the background, monitoring behaviour. When it detects symptoms of depression, it notifies the person’s pre-determined “circle of care”.
In a release, the company offered a glimpse into what the mind.me app will look like:
The start-up has just hired three world-class experts in the medical and pharmaceutical field, which raises hopes that mind.me will make progress quickly. Patrick Cashman, one of the new hires, used to be President of a leading Canadian pharmaceutical company. He called mind.me “the first and largest real-time mental health database in the world”.
