Summary: Digital phenotyping using various sources of sensor data is expected to transform the practice of psychiatry in the next decade. One promising application in geriatric psychiatry is the use of wearable or environmental sensors to help guide the care of people with dementia.  In this session, we will present on the development of some innovative technologies applied to the problem of how to objectively measure and monitor the behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia.
