A CEA-Leti PhD candidate collaborated with scientists from Gipsa-Lab and the UGA psychology and neurocognition laboratory to determine whether or not acute stress can be detected and assessed using an explainable and interpretable “white box” method. Over the course of the three-year project, they came up with a method leveraging more robust algorithms than those used in “black box” methods. And it performs at the state of the art! Two patents have been filed to protect the innovation.
The solution, built on off-the-shelf sensors to measure temperature, heartbeat, breathing, movement, and perspiration, will find applications in psychosocial risk and chronic stress prevention, stress management training, and pilot, firefighter, and military training.
