An IBM Research Team Uses AI in Mental-Health Assessment

IBM researchers used AI to help predict the likelihood of study subjects developing psychosis. They employed AI to parse transcripts from a prior study and predict the potential for mental illness from linguistic indicators. The AI was 83 percent accurate in its predictions, and interestingly, one indicator was that people at risk used fewer possessive pronouns while talking than those who weren’t at risk.
