Oct 30, 2019

Register today for SMIAdviser’s free webinar: "Modeling Mood and Emotional Patterns from Speech in Bipolar Disorder" on Thursday, Nov. 7 from 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. EST  

What Will it Cover?

This webinar will describe research that analyzes passive speech collected daily through smartphones in individuals with bipolar disorder for up to one year. 

The hallmark clinical feature of bipolar disorder is pathological variability in mood and emotions. Primary manifestations of these clinical features are mediated through speech and behavioral patterns. Patterns of mood, emotions and acoustics are associated with outcomes and course of illness. The data consists of over 50,000 telephone calls in 60 participants and demonstrates the utility of passive speech monitoring over extended periods of time in bipolar disorder.

Who Will Be Presenting?

Melvin McInnis, MD, Director of the Heinz C. Prechter Bipolar Research Program, University of Michigan. He is an internationally recognized expert in bipolar and depressive disorders.
