Multimodal Validation of Facial Expression Detection Software for Real-time Monitoring of Affect in Patients with Suicidal Intent
Abstract: High risk for suicide is typically assessed by clinicians using questionnaires and interviews. Although useful in a wide range of clinical settings, this assessment approach has many disadvantages e.g., misinterpretation subtle differences in meanings of words used in emotional scales, objective and subjective biases and difficulties in reliably assessing the intensity of the emotion. Most significantly, these cues can be missed with catastrophic consequences.
