Samsung Predict To Prevent application

The predictive text system that actively prevents tragedy from depression


“When friends struggle with depression, this app can help.””  - ADWEEK

Background :


350 million people worldwide suffer from depression and communicating with people with depression, despite their best intentions, can sometimes do more harm than good and can lead to self-harm or suicide.


Problem :


Texting has become the main channel people use to communicate, and for people with depression, communication via text is riskier than face-to-face because readers are unable to recognize the tone of voice, facial expressions or body languages. Knowing that it only takes one word to unravel a life, how can we protect people with depression from harmful words before they reach them?
