Dr. Stephen Strakowski Explains New Software Used to Detect Depression

Her name is Ellie, and she is a computer-generated therapist used to diagnose depression or other emotional problems in patients. She is used to engage patients in therapy discussion and monitor non-verbal cues that may be more telling than verbal discussion. Ellie tracks body language like eye movement and hand gestures more than 1,000 times a minute, which is something humans do initiatively. The advantage that Ellie gives is that she offers a more metrics based measurement of these non-verbal cues, says Dr. Stephen Strakowski. Dr. Strakowski also explains that Ellie should be used as a tool in making a diagnosis, not as a replacement for human therapists.
