Multimodal Privacy-preserving Mood Prediction from Mobile Data: A Preliminary Study

by   Terrance Liu, et al.

Mental health conditions remain under-diagnosed even in countries with common access to advanced medical care. The ability to accurately and efficiently predict mood from easily collectible data has several important implications towards the early detection and intervention of mental health disorders. One promising data source to help monitor human behavior is from daily smartphone usage. However, care must be taken to summarize behaviors without identifying the user through personal (e.g., personally identifiable information) or protected attributes (e.g., race, gender). In this paper, we study behavioral markers or daily mood using a recent dataset of mobile behaviors from high-risk adolescent populations. Using computational models, we find that multimodal modeling of both text and app usage features is highly predictive of daily mood over each modality alone. Furthermore, we evaluate approaches that reliably obfuscate user identity while remaining predictive of daily mood. By combining multimodal representations with privacy-preserving learning, we are able to push forward the performance-privacy frontier as compared to unimodal approaches.
