We will be demonstrating our latest pioneering AI demo, which aims to create a single numerical estimator of a person’s stress levels.

Designed alongside clinical psychiatrists and neuroscientists, our demo uses a range of self-reported (via app), environmental and physiological measurements (body worn sensors), which we’ve analysed using a variety of machine learning methods to provide a simple indication of the status of a person’s stress at any given time.

The potential applications are wide ranging, from informing pharmaceutical companies about drug action and efficacy during clinical trials to providing biofeedback via apps. This can empower patients to more effectively understand and manage stress in their daily lives.

Building the digital ecosystem required for tomorrow's clinical trials

Date: 9th October
Time: 09:35
Speaker: Jaquie Finn, Monty Barlow

Underlying stress conditions, from occasional acute stress through to diagnosable chronic conditions, can have a profound affect on clinical trials. It's vital that pharmaceutical companies fully understand individual participant's baseline stress levels in order to assess drug action and efficacy during trials.

We’re investigating the measured inputs that will allow us to build an effective, AI-driven stress monitoring system. Jaquie Finn and Monty Barlow will present our work to date and map out the ultimate vision: a full digital ecosystem for managing clinical trials.
