Recent technological innovations promise to reshape how we understand and treat serious mental illness. LSU Professor of Psychology and Director of the Affective Science & Psychopathology Laboratory Alex Cohen will discuss how they can be deployed and regulated to unlock their full potential. In the near future, these technologies can be used to greatly improve the accuracy and efficiency of mental healthcare, and to empower consumers and their support teams. He will be joined by colleagues Dr. Brita Elvevåg, a neuroscientist and professor at the University of Tromsø, Norway and Chelsea Chandler, a computer science and cognitive science PhD candidate at the University of Colorado Boulder, who will also present their research on this topic.
LSU Distinguished Research Masters Pius Nkashama Ngandu and Robert P. Lipton present their work at the April 2021 award ceremony.
