The Chatbot Therapist Will See You Now

 

Until recently, chatbots were used as supplementary tools for therapists.

Now, chatbots like Woebot claim to be able to improve your mental health with advanced sentiment analysis algorithms.

If you’re afraid of being judged, are too far away from the nearest therapist, or can’t afford to see one, a therapist chatbot will be there for you 24/7.

So just what is all the hype behind therapist chatbots?

Your privacy is the biggest concern.

Majority of therapy chatbots communicate via Facebook messenger.

This goes to show chatbots will be a huge part of your future life in surprising, unexpected ways. How do you feel about spilling your heart to a chatbot therapist?
