Depression detection using emotion artificial intelligence - 2017

Depression Detection Using Emotion Artificial Intelligence

Research Area:  Machine Learning


Depression is a leading cause of mental ill health, which has been found to increase risk of early death. Moreover it is a major cause of suicidal ideation and leads to significant impairment in daily life. Emotion artificial intelligence is a field of ongoing research in emotion detection, specifically in the field of text mining. The advent of internet based media sources has resulted in significant user data being available for sentiment analysis of text and images. This paper aims to apply natural language processing on Twitter feeds for conducting emotion analysis focusing on depression. Individual tweets are classified as neutral or negative, based on a curated word-list to detect depression tendencies. In the process of class prediction, support vector machine and Naive-Bayes classifier have been used. The results have been presented using the primary classification metrics including F1-score, accuracy and confusion matrix.
