According to The Wall Street Journal, Apple Inc. is working on technology to help diagnose depression and cognitive decline, aiming for tools that could expand the scope of its burgeoning health portfolio.

WHY THE DEVELOPMENT ?

A 2019 feasibility study showed that 31 adults with cognitive impairment exhibited different behaviour on their Apple devices than healthy older adults.

The Company has partnered with UCLA and Biogen to explore if sensitive data like facial expressions, typing metrics could signal mental-health concerns.

This process will focus on developing algorithms that can assess mental health status using sensor-gathered activity, and daily phone activity data including sleep.

According to Biogen, it is collaborating on the study because it hopes it can help Apple develop an iPhone feature to detect mild cognitive impairment early and encourage relevant users to seek care earlier.

Privacy.

Apple is known for its privacy concerns, therefore the information gathered from Apple’s studies with Biogen and UCLA will be collected and store only on the iPhone, without transferring it to Apple’s servers.  

Apple believes our phones can pay attention to us and hopefully get us to pay more attention to ourselves.

“It will be reviewed at the end of this month [July] and any SIM that has not been fully registered by the end of August will be barred from certain services including voice and data. It will also be more expensive to use unregistered SIMs,” she added.
