News Synopsis

One of the biggest illness that people of this generation suffers from is mental illness such as depression, anxiety, etc. As we live in a fast-moving world, our lives have become more alienated. All this has left a deep impact on our mental health. The statistics around depression are shocking, to say the least, and yet not many people reach out to take professional help from therapists. This is more so because many people ignore the symptoms that they may have and go on with their lives. Apple has thus decided to develop artificial intelligence that will detect depression in people using advanced technology.

Apple is working on this technology and would include them in future iPhone models. This technology would take the help of many sensor data to reach a conclusion. It will take into account the search history, human activity, health-related information such as blood pressure, heart rate, and would also account for sleeping patterns to detect depression. The technology would also help people in identifying earlier autism traits in their children. This technology has the potential to change the face of entire health-related AI.
