Mind the Machines: Technology and Mental Health
Digital mental health services have taken off, with the Covid-19 pandemic acting as a tailwind, and the demand for services spiking. Investment dollars have poured into the space, and we've seen a collision of tech solutions and behavioral health services. The session will discuss the latest advances in tech and mental health, including machine learning algorithms applied to illness states, chat bots, breakthrough treatments such as psychedelics, brain stimulation, and digital therapeutics including VR and gaming. With technology as an enabler, the panelists will address which real world problems can be solved with it, and shed light on the future of mental health care including opportunities, and pitfalls of machine learning and AI in this context.
