The creators of the application Woebot hope to make free psychological support available to everyone — by means of artificial intelligence. Whether it is worth carrying on heart-to-heart talks with car? Photo: depositphotos.com Why to go to the psychotherapist and to pay him on several thousands of rubles for hour consultation? Why to buy a subscription and to communicate with the expert remotely? It is possible just to install the application and to talk free of charge to an AI algorithm. And Woebot already have first users. Here that American Nick Impson:nik Impson the resident of the USA "Has told the Air Force instead of going to the psychotherapist — I was engaged in it earlier, it was necessary to force ourselves, before you the stranger, not clearly, it is how possible for them to trust and open sat — and here you just write. As in the diary or somewhere else, for example. I was bribed by lack of pressure". Objective data on efficiency of Woebot don't exist. Some experts even consider remote psychotherapy profanation, not to mention chatbota. Alexander Fedorovich is a psychotherapist of the highest category "Any remote consultation with the psychologist or with the psychotherapist are a fake. Some academic questions, information transfer, training and so on in the remote mode are quite available, and here as for any subtle psychological aspects — it is impossible. Where big complexity? For example, with loss, the death of the loved one. And the mechanical voice says to you: "Nothing terrible, let's breathe, life goes on". Well, still some nonsense. And even if he will tell the correct words which the program, for example, can provide, then all the same the person on other end of a wire understands that it is told by the car". How does Woebot — so far, it seems, the first AI-application of this kind work? You come, you get acquainted, the robot warns that it isn't a psychotherapist and doesn't seek to replace the person, and you answer different questions further, generally just choosing possible answers. The algorithm daily consults about your mood, gradually learns to categorize negative thoughts, to monitor formulations. The boat is constructed on the principles of cognitive and behavioral psychotherapy. It is rather formalized approach for use of artificial intelligence, the clinical psychologist and the existential psychotherapist Anna Boeva comments. Anna Boeva is a clinical psychologist and the psychotherapist "It is important to know that there are different approaches: cognitive and behavioral therapy which is constructed on rather accurate schemes I think that there it is possible, and, for example, humanistic psychotherapy or gestalt therapy which is constructed on emotional contact, there more likely it is less possible. Though, of course, some primary if she reveals that you have panic attacks or depressive frustration — will help". Woebot — not a student's startup, stand behind it serious people. The application brags of presence of users in 120 countries and millions of messages in a week. The foundress of the company and the chief psychologist — candidates of science and employees With
