Montreal Start-Up Could Detect First Signs of Depression

Montreal Start-Up Could Detect First Signs of Depression

What if A.I. could monitor your loved ones and warn you IN ADVANCE of symptoms of depression?

A local start-up called is attracting top-notch expertise. The application-based health monitor will use artificial intelligence to manage and predict mental illness, including depression.

The start-up has just hired three world-class experts in the medical and pharmaceutical field, which raises hopes that will make progress quickly. Patrick Cashman, one of the new hires, used to be President of a leading Canadian pharmaceutical company. He called “the first and largest real-time mental health database in the world”.
