Mental Health Digital Biomarkers: Moving from Research to Practice
Dan Adler is a PhD Candidate in Information Science at Cornell University and DLI Doctoral Fellow, based at Cornell Tech in NYC. He works with Dr. Tanzeem Choudhury, and is a member of the People-Aware Computing Lab. There's been a ton of research over the past decade to identify AI-generated digital biomarkers to measure symptoms of mental illness. His research focuses on if these AI-generated digital biomarkers are reliable in practice. Dan conducts quantitative modeling work to improve the reliability of mental health digital biomarkers, as well as qualitative work to identify use cases when digital biomarkers may prove unreliable.
