MIT’s depression-detecting AI might be its scariest creation yet

According to their paper, they’ve developed a context-free method by which a machine can break down text or audio from a human and assign a score indicating the person’s level of depression.

MIT researchers detail a neural-network model that can be unleashed on raw text and audio data from interviews to discover speech patterns indicative of depression.

The lead author on the paper, Tuka Alhanai, said “It’s not so much detecting depression, but it’s a similar concept of evaluating, from an everyday signal in speech, if someone has cognitive impairment or not.”

To test their AI, the researchers conducted an experiment where 142 people being screened for depression answered a series of questions asked by a human-controlled virtual agent.

There was no A,B,C,D to choose from, the AI discerns depression from linguistic cues.

In the text version, the AI was able to predict depression after about seven question and answer sequences.

In a game where, theoretically, a computer and a person listen to the same conversation and end up making diametrically opposed depression diagnoses, who decides which is correct? Or, if you prefer, in a scenario in which a computer identifies potential depressives, does a human also conduct the same checks to ensure doctors aren’t treating patients the algorithm was wrong about? Because that’d be redundant and wasteful.

Individuals suffering from depression are beset by debilitating sadness for weeks to years on end.

Passive automated monitoring of human communication may address these constraints and provide better screening for depression.

Imagine losing out on a job because a company used a “Depression detector” AI to determine you weren’t mentally stable enough during your interview, or having an algorithm’s interpretation of your responses to a lawyer’s questions being admissible in your child custody case.

This AI app wants to make beautiful music with you

If you wander through this world with a song in your heart and a tune on the tip of your tongue, Amadeus Code might be able to help you turn it into beautiful music.

After being in a limited beta run, Amadeus Code has just opened up to the public, ready to turn would-be artists into hit-making musicians.

How it works: Amadeus Code’s AI churns through music libraries, breaking down music into tiny units and looking for patterns.

When a songwriter uses the app, the AI can then pull up those patterns and suggest new notes, slowly building the composer’s melodies into music.

“AI has this peculiar ability to find novel solutions-some successful, some not so much,” says Amadeus Code co-founder Taishi Fukuyama in a statement.

The latest version of the app comes with a new feature-the Harmony Library, which lets users search for inspiration in Spotify’s library, specifically its chord progressions.

It’s not copying per se, but instead falls into the age-old musical tradition of creating a new song inspired by someone else’s work, like how Lana Del Rey was inspired by Radiohead. Fukuyama hopes that songwriters won’t let the app do their work for them, though: “We hope that users will complete the work started by Amadeus Code by telling their own unique stories, which will continue to be what makes music truly irreplaceable by artificial intelligence.”
