Measuring mental well-being with mobile sensing has been an increasingly active research topic. Pervasiveness of smartphones combined with the convenience of mobile app distribution platforms (e.g., Google Play) provide a tremendous opportunity to reach out to millions of users. However, the studies at the confluence of mental health and mobile sensing have been longitudinally limited, controlled, or confined to a small number of participants. In this talk I will report on what we believe is the largest longitudinal in-the-wild study of mood through smartphones. I will describe an Android app to collect participants’ self-reported moods and system triggered experience sampling data while passively measuring their physical activity, sociability, and mobility via their device’s sensors. I will report the results of a large-scale analysis of the data collected for about three years from ~18,000 users.

This is a rehearsal talk for WWW ’17.
