Robot Meets Freud: Bots in Mental Health

Robot Meets Freud: Bots in Mental Health
Recording: Robot Meets Freud: Bots in Mental Health, Mar 9, 2018


Every night we dream and every day shit happens. We often want to discuss these things with people, but not always psychotherapists. Sometimes regular humans are best; text messaging and bots may be even better. But can we trust our mental health to a machine? This panel discusses the strengths and weaknesses of AI applied to previously human territory, the ethical conundrums and potential efficacy of a machine “knowing” when/how to help us with our mental health.
