Description The project has developed systems for the automatic analysis of human behaviour, especially when it comes to the detection of possible mental issues (e.g., autism, depression, insecure attachment, etc.). The project has expanded the spectrum of social signals considered for automatic detection of mental health issues.
Exploitation Route The systems can be used in a clinical setting to test whether it can support doctors in their diagnostic activity. While having been designed for autism, the system can easily be adapted to any other issue that can be detected through a questionnaire (e.g., attachment, depression, etc.). The project made AI-driven systems more usable.
