Improving our mental health is becoming an increasingly important factor, especially in the face of COVID-19. To help with this, the team at BlueSkeye AI have been working hard to harness our world-leading face analysis and automatic human behaviour technology to create TrueBlue, a mobile phone solution that will allow people to objectively measure and record their mood, and to get a clinical rating of their mental health status whilst operating within a strict ethical and data privacy framework.
How you can help
TrueBlue is now going through a process of medical device regulation, including clinical trials. Before we can commence our clinical trials, we are in need of beta testers and, of course, data to train our AI systems. It is of note that you do not have to have a mental health diagnosis to be a beta testing or data volunteer as we are interested in all degrees of mental wellbeing.
What will i have to do
TrueBlue guides you through an interaction with a virtual agent called Kira using natural language. That is, you can just speak to Kira and the AI underpinning it responds appropriately, guiding you through your TrueBlue experience. In TrueBlue, you will be able to perform a short task resulting in a measure of your mood and mental health status which take about 5 minutes to complete. Current tasks include recording a mood diary, or reading a book out loud, and other tasks are planned.
