Mental Health: There's an App For That

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Social media posts, GPS information, sleep patterns, tone of voice - the data of a person's life can be crunched to diagnose, and even predict, depression and mental illness. Artificial intelligence-powered chatbots can dispense talk therapy and teach cognitive behavioural skills. What promise does AI and digital technology hold for mental health care? And what are the dangers inherent in using technology in this way? The Agenda examines the intersection of AI and mental health.
