Special Session on New Business Models for Personal Mental Health in Big Data Era

 

*****************

Venue: Imperial College London, London, UK

Time: Aug 30, 2015

Website: http://braininformatics.london/special-session-on-new-business-models-for-personal-mental-health-in-big-data-era/

*****************

 

Workshop Theme:

 

Technology is allowing the acquisition of unprecedented information related to individuals’ mental health, emotional wellbeing and resilience as well as the provision of novel methods of mental disease treatment. However, to date, much of the research has been overly focused on the technical domains, and despite the critical role that businesses play within the development of mental healthcare, the impact upon society and humans has received relatively little attention. This special session of BIH will provide a space where the business and technology (especially Big Data technology) of personalised mental healthcare meet. We are interested in discussing how to leverage the opportunities offered by recent technological advancements in order to build new business models that provide improved mental health services for both healthy subjects and diagnosed patients.

 

Topics:

* Business models for personal / wearable / ubiquitous services for non-diagnosed people with mental health concerns

* Big data driven mental healthcare services and applications (deep learning, behaviour change)

* Social networks, social media for mental health assessment and awareness

* Applications and their business models for specific mental diseases

* Commercial, social, and governmental mental healthcare services models

* WaaS (Wisdom as a Service) and active SaaS services for mental healthcare

* Screenless and slow or adaptive media solutions for Evidence-Based Social Interventions

 

Organizers:

Prof. Yike Guo, Imperial College London, UK

Dr. Chao Wu, Imperial College London, UK

Dr. David Lopez Berzosa, University of Surrey, UK

Dr. David Plans, University of Surrey, UK

 

Important Dates:
