Using computational language analysis to find information about suicide risk in social media.
Philip Resnik has partnered with a team of experts in suicide prevention in the journal of Suicide and Life Threatening Behavior to explain for a non-technical audience how computational analysis may be used to find evidence of suicide risk in texts of naturally occurring language such as social media posts, a source of information that in the past has not been broadly available. The article, "Naturally occurring language as a source of evidence in suicide prevention," is available here.
