Description

Abstract: Unlike other fields of medicine, psychiatry does not rely on objective indices to diagnose mental health disorders and to assess symptoms severity. Recent advances in the fields of engineering, computer science, and computational science have led to the development of novel methods to quantify and measure behavioural phenotypes of mental health disorders.

In this presentation, Dr. Paola Pedrelli will describe the concept of digital phenotyping and outline research measuring depressive symptoms severity by passively collecting objective behavioural and physiological data with wearable and mobile sensors. 

近年來,國際科技產業界也積極開發整合醫療感測器的穿戴式醫療裝置,並希望通過FDA的審查上市,希望透過記錄日常活動、心跳、鼓勵提醒養成良好習慣改變研究數據的型態,整合醫學研究、診斷、治療,更進一步作到預防保健。複雜疾病如大腦疾病、癌症、心血管疾病、代謝性疾病,都是當代最困難的醫學難題。過去的研究即使是長期前瞻性設計也都受限於施測人力和分析工具,僅能抽樣性地取用單一觀察點(例如每日或每週)。然而,隨著智慧手機的普及,加上日新月異的穿載式配備,「系統性」、「連續性」、「大量性」的受試者生物指誌得以被收集,這種前所未有的「即時性」、「動態性」的數據分析,更提供了醫學上事先診斷和預防的可能性。
