Interpretable Predictive Modelling for Mental Wellbeing through Social Media

In this project, we develop a predictive model for mental health disorders, with interpretability of outcomes as the key criterion. We take motivation from psychology to design interpretability methods. Our model will analyse user’s historical data to detect the key attributes which may indicate the likelihood of mental disorders in future. This work is ongoing in collaboration with Dr. Rajesh Sharma, University of Tartu, Estonia.

Ad Maker

In this project, we design a web application to assist ad makers in designing ad copies. At present, the model generates a set of use cases given a product which can be used for story telling. We are working towards generating divergent yet relatable ideas for ad copies. In this exploratary project, we use a multitude of NLP and Psychology concepts including LLMs, ConceptNet, n-grams, recallability and so on.
