We are happy to announce that the Trustworthy AI for Healthcare Lab at the ITP Foundation will be launched on 1st of May 2023.
The mission of the Trustworthy AI for Healthcare Lab at the Information Technologies for Psychitry (ITP) Foundation is to initiate and perform interdisciplinary research aiming at the assessment of ethical and societal implications of artificial intelligence applied for the psychiatry and related fields.
Co-Design of a Trustworthy AI System in Healthcare: Smartphone-based Monitoring of Bipolar Disorder
Assessment of trustworthy AI systems is always a process and needs to start with the first step. For our Trustworthy AI Lab, this first step is the „Co-Design of a Trustworthy AI System in Healthcare: Smartphone-based Monitoring of Bipolar Disorder” use case. Mental state in clinical research is assessed subjectively through discussion and rating scales. Recent research confirms that objectively collected data from sensors can be a gamechanger in detection of episodes of bipolar disorder (BD). However, there are still some barriers to use sensors in monitoring of affective states. The key fundament of the Z-Inspection process is the identification and discussion of ethical issues and tensions through the elaboration of socio-technical scenarios. This can only be achieved with interdisciplinary team, and within this use case our aim is the co-design of a smartphone-based system for supporting detection of episodes of bipolar disorder using acoustic objective markers.
