Patient X, Mental Health & Artificial Intelligence
Technology is changing the way patients can obtain mental healthcare. A patient unable to access a psychologist due to his or her remote location or due to a lack of supply could suffer a mental health affliction for years. Introduce Tess, an Artificial intelligence (AI) device that can substitute for a psychologist by emulating the doctor’s prompts and responses. What may have been seen as science fiction just a few years ago is now a reality, providing a needed service while simultaneously upending an industry.
