Information, Child Mental Health and Society (2013-2014)

Imagine a world where all children receive the education, mental and physical care only available to privileged kids today. Imagine a world where children are seamlessly and effortlessly evaluated and diagnosed in real-time by their caregivers as they play. Imagine a world where the most important members of society, our children, receive the mental health attention they deserve and need to develop to their full potential and prosper in society. Imagine a world where we understand how to detect mental health and developmental problems in early childhood so that we can intervene early in life and prevent future suffering and impairment. This is a challenge that can only be addressed by an interdisciplinary team of computational people with child psychiatrists and neuroscientists who can integrate and mine knowledge from cross-cultural and global data. This project team engaged in data and video analysis for projects in child mental health.
