For one founder, workplace burnout sparked a high-tech way to detect depression

Working 80 to 100 hours a week for 7 years in healthcare investment banking finally caught up to Kavi Misri, founder and CEO of Rose. Like many, he found himself burned out, depressed, and in need of help. Looking for answers, Kavi was struck by how difficult it was for him to get basic mental health care. Knowing there had to be a better way, he founded Rose. Using natural language processing and deep learning to predict depression and mood disorder symptoms, Kavi and his team have created a high-tech approach to assessing and predicting a patient’s mental health faster.
