Diogenes: Researchers are combining automated text analysis with machine learning (computers that can learn from experience without being programmed) to classify a variety of mental health conditions from natural language text samples such as blog posts.

Such classification is already outperforming that made by trained therapists.

Great...now we can look forward to Siri asking us about our mother.

Those with symptoms of depression use significantly more first person singular pronouns - such as "me", "myself" and "I"

So "De La Soul" was depressed?  They didn't seem like it.

Huh. I've never bothered to submit a story, since I already know it's a waste of effort.. why bother if it will never be greenlit, anyway?

Farker since 2009, lurking since 2002... probably not changing anytime soon. I guess that puts me in the slight majority, since most on this site only read without commenting, followed by those who comment.. I'm pretty sure most Farkers never bother submitting headlines, either.
