At BlueSkeye AI, we are on a mission to leverage novel technology to improve female mental health and wellbeing. We have harnessed our world-leading face analysis and automatic human behaviour technology, developed in collaboration with the University of Nottingham, to support women during their fertility, pregnancy and menopause journeys. We have developed Avocado, a bespoke smartphone app that can automatically and objectively detect mood changes during these journeys. Our AI system to detect the onset of pre-and postnatal depression for use in the NHS is undergoing clinical trials1. Avocado engages users in tasks such as recording a mood diary or reading a book out loud to understand mental health and wellbeing status.
