Reports on a press conference on digital psychiatry held at the recent DGPPN congress in Berlin (27.11. – 1.12.2018) have been published in various media.
A brief radio feature on “Digital Phenotyping” was broadcasted on August 8, 2018, on Deutschlandfunk.
“Big Data”, “Precision Medicine” and “Machine Learning” are praised as the solution of all problems in psychiatry. However, critical questions are rarely discussed.
The former NIMH director Tom Insel believes that “digital phenotyping” moves psychiatry in a new direction.
