Mindful of AI

Dr Raymond Bond for Ulster University spoke at a workshop hosted by the University of Cambridge - Mindful of AI: Language, Technology and Mental Health (1st-2nd October).

This two-day virtual interdisciplinary workshop brought together a diverse group of researchers from academia, industry and government, with specialisms in many different disciplines, to discuss the different effects, both positive and negative, that AI-based communications technologies are currently having, and will have, on mental health and well-being. Raymond talked about the ChatPal project and how chatbots can offer help to users that conventional mental health apps fail to provide.
