#116 - How AI can make therapy better

22 mins | Dec 15, 2021

Today's episode from 15th December 2021. This morning, talk about mental health may have gotten louder over the last few years but many who suffer still don't get the help they need. Could artificial intelligence be the answer? We take a look at how two mental-health care providers are using AI techniques to pioneer new approaches to therapy. Could analysing the language used in therapy sessions give therapists a better insight into what they do, and ultimately, reveal how psychotherapy works in the first place? For MIT Technology Review, Charlotte Jee and Will Douglas Heaven examine the intriguing possibilities of using AI techniques to solve looming mental health crises, explaining how it works and answering some of the major concerns with using this technology. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
