Speaker diarization relies on the assumption that speech segments corresponding to a particular speaker are concentrated in a specific region of the speaker space; a region which represents that speaker's identity. These identities are not known a priori, so a clustering algorithm is typically employed, which is traditionally based solely on audio. Under noisy conditions, however, such an approach poses the risk of generating unreliable speaker clusters. In this work we aim to utilize linguistic...

Abstract The individual heterogeneity is a challenge to the prosperous promises of cutting-edge neuroimaging techniques for better diagnosis and early detection of psychiatric disorders. Individuals with similar clinical manifestations may result from very different pathophysiology. Conventional approaches based on comparing the group-averages provide insufficient information to support the individualized diagnosis. Here we present an individualized imaging methodology that combines naturalistic...

AbstractObjective: Personalized treatment methods have shown great promise in efficacy studies across many fields of medicine and mental health. Little is known, however, about their utility in process-outcome research. This study is the first to apply personalized treatment methods in the field of process-outcome research, as demonstrated based on the alliance-outcome association. Method: Using a sample of 741 patients, individual regressions were fitted to estimate within-patient effects of th...

Objective: Depression is a highly common mental disorder and a major cause of disability worldwide. Several psychological interventions are available, but there is a lack of evidence to decide which treatment works best for whom. This study aimed to identify subgroups of patients who respond differentially to cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) or person-centred counselling for depression (CfD). Methods: This was a retrospective analysis of archival routine practice data for 1435 patients who re...

Importance Compared with the treatment of physical conditions, the quality of care of mental health disorders remains poor and the rate of improvement in treatment is slow, a primary reason being the lack of objective and systematic methods for measuring the delivery of psychotherapy. Objective To use a deep learning model applied to a large-scale clinical data set of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) session transcripts to generate a quantifiable measure of treatment delivered and to determine...

: Machine learning is a branch of computer science that has the potential to transform epidemiological sciences. Amid a growing focus on "Big Data," it offers epidemiologists new tools to tackle problems for which classical methods are not well-suited. In order to critically evaluate the value of integrating machine learning algorithms and existing methods, however, it is essential to address language and technical barriers between the two fields that can make it difficult for epidemiologists to...

Objective Amid electronic health records, laboratory tests, and other technology, office-based patient and provider communication is still the heart of primary medical care. Patients typically present multiple complaints, requiring physicians to decide how to balance competing demands. How this time is allocated has implications for patient satisfaction, payments, and quality of care. We investigate the effectiveness of machine learning methods for automated annotation of medical topics in patie...
Speaker diarization relies on the assumption that acoustic embeddings from speech segments corresponding to a particular speaker share common characteristics. Thus, they are concentrated in a specific region of the speaker space; a region which represents that speaker's identity. Those identities however are not known a priori, so a clustering algorithm is employed, which is typically based solely on audio. In this work we explore conversational scenarios where the speakers play distinct roles a...

Abstract null null Intro null . Recent literature identifies childbirth as a potentially traumatic event, following which mothers may develop symptoms of Post-Traumatic-Stress-Following-Childbirth (PTS-FC). Especially when persistent, PTS-FC may interfere with mothers’ caregiving and associated infant development, underscoring the need for accurate predictive screening of risk. Drawing on recent developments in advanced statistical modeling, the aim of the current study was to identify a set of ...

Artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare aims to learn patterns in large multimodal datasets both within and across individuals. These patterns may either help improve our understanding of current clinical status or predict a future outcome. AI holds the potential to revolutionize geriatric mental health care and research by supporting diagnosis, treatment, and clinical decision-making. However, much of this momentum is driven by data and computer scientists and runs the risk of being disconne...

Importance null Clinical trials have identified numerous prescriptive predictors of mental disorder treatment response, ie, predictors of which treatments are best for which patients. However, none of these prescriptive predictors is strong enough alone to guide precision treatment planning. This has prompted growing interest in developing precision treatment rules (PTRs) that combine information across multiple prescriptive predictors, but this work has been much less successful in psychiatry t...

Therapists' forced transition to provide psychotherapy remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic offers a unique opportunity to examine therapists' views and challenges with online therapy. This study aimed to investigate the main challenges experienced by therapists during the transition from in-person to online therapy at the beginning of the pandemic and 3 months later, and the association between these challenges and therapists' perception of the quality of the relationship with their online pat...

Many psychological treatments have been shown to be cost-effective and efficacious, as long as they are implemented faithfully. Assessing fidelity and providing feedback is expensive and time-consuming. Machine learning has been used to assess treatment fidelity, but the reliability and generalisability is unclear. We collated and critiqued all implementations of machine learning to assess the verbal behaviour of all helping professionals, with particular emphasis on treatment fidelity for thera...
BACKGROUND Uncertainty surrounds the ethical and legal implications of algorithmic and data-driven technologies in the mental health context, including technologies characterized as artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning, and other forms of automation. OBJECTIVE This study aims to survey empirical scholarly literature on the application of algorithmic and data-driven technologies in mental health initiatives to identify the legal and ethical issues that have been raised. METHOD...
Automatic analysis of human affective and social signals brought computer science closer to social sciences and, in particular, enabled collaborations between computer scientists and behavioral scientists. In this talk, I highlight the main research areas in this burgeoning interdisciplinary area, and provide an overview of the opportunities and challenges. Drawing on examples from our recent research, such as automatic analysis of interactive play therapy sessions with children, and diagnosis o...

For many years, psychiatrists have tried to understand factors involved in response to medications or psychotherapies, in order to personalize their treatment choices. There is now a broad and growing interest in the idea that we can develop models to personalize treatment decisions using new statistical approaches from the field of machine learning and applying them to larger volumes of data. In this pursuit, there has been a paradigm shift away from experimental studies to confirm or refute sp...

OBJECTIVE Despite evidence showing that systematic outcome monitoring can prevent treatment failure, the practical conditions that allow for implementation are seldom met in naturalistic psychological services. In the context of limited time and resources, session-by-session evaluation is rare in most clinical settings. This study aimed to validate innovative prediction methods for individual treatment progress and dropout risk based on basic outcome monitoring. METHODS Routine data of a natural...
