Northwell Health: Researchers use Facebook activity to predict psychiatric diagnoses

Northwell Health: Researchers use Facebook activity to predict psychiatric diagnoses . “Researchers at The Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research developed novel machine learning (ML) algorithms from a user’s Facebook activity capable of accurately predicting those who go on to develop schizophrenia spectrum disorders (SSD) and mood disorders (MD) more than a year prior to the patient’s first hospitalization and official diagnosis. This milestone accomplishment — made in collaboration with computer scientists at IBM Research and published today in Nature Partner Journals (npj) Schizophrenia — further supports the integration of digital activity and social media into early intervention and psychiatric care.”
