The national DBSA organization has announced that Skye Keywise app creators are recruiting beta testers to use their wellness app for two weeks and to complete a survey, which will help with making the best product possible for people living with mood disorders. KeyWise AI was founded as a spin-off based on research done at the University of Illinois, Chicago.
Skye Keywise is an app that tracks brain health without using daily mood logs, diary entries, or questionnaires. The app monitors changes in mood and cognitive abilities through algorithms that establish and analyze how you interact with your smartphone. It specifically examines the number of backspaces, use of autocorrect, number of daily key presses, and speed of typing. If the app detects changes, it will notify you.
Skye Keywise will not have access to the words you type.
It takes from 1 to 5 days for KeyWise to have enough keystroke data to calculate your brain health metrics. During this time, you are also adapting to using a new keyboard on your phone, and your use of the new keyboard will improve over time. The algorithms are continuously learning your typing patterns, so the more keystroke data you provide the more accurate your metrics will be.
Participants who complete the survey will receive a FREE one-year subscription to the premium version of Skye Keywise. If you would like to participate, please sign up to be added to the beta tester waitlist.
