Cognitive Science Research Group Industrial Collaboration help ease Anxiety and Depression

Cognitive Science Research Group Industrial Collaboration help ease Anxiety and Depression

The Cognitive Science research group have signed a license agreement with a company called IESO Digital Health Ltd.  IESO Digital Health provides evidence-based mental health therapy online. One-to-one therapy is delivered in real time using written (typed) conversation, with patients meeting as therapist in a secure virtual therapy room, at a time and location that is both convenient and comfortable for them.

  The collaboration allows IESO to use language processing and machine learning techniques developed by the Cognitive Science Research Group to predict the likelihood of the patient’s commitment to the full treatment programme based on the interaction during the first 2 sessions, as well as indicating the seriousness of the patient’s condition and whether their treatment is currently likely to lead to recovery or not.
