Project Description

This unique UROP lies at the intersection of artificial intelligence, digital health, smartphone apps, and mental health. The project offers the opportunity to work at the frontier of mobile health interventions and artificial intelligence. This opportunity will focus on platform design (server and Android/iOS app development) data analysis derived from mobile sensor data obtained from studies focusing on mental health and serious mental illnesses via mobile interventions.

Pre-requisites
