MS: I found that Joyable had a user-friendly interface and felt the Joyable app would be good for those who have mild depression and anxiety. The coach and the program do help you stay on track with self-improvement. You need to work with the coach after completing each module if you hope to get the most out of the program. That said, if you are dealing with moderate to severe depression and anxiety, this app will not be helpful.
DB: The last app I looked at was Talkspace, which provides online therapy with a licensed health professional at a significantly reduced rate. Similar to Joyable, it uses a variety of activity-based tools to make improvements in a variety of areas such as happiness, compassion, balance, self-awareness, and productivity. Users can communicate with therapists by leaving text, audio, and video messages at any time.
Pros: It's system is more advanced comparing with Manychat or Chatfuel (both are like toys if you try Activechat). It has autorresponders of course, but also suitable for flexible AI conversations. Is like coding an advanced chatbot without needing to be a coder. The team is very responsive and their founder Andrii has a clear vision about this project.
Woebot also offers quizzes and videos, which are there to help you discover your thoughts that come automatically and contribute to your struggles. The exchange with the app takes 10 minutes, though you can stop chatting any time you wish before that. The advantage is that it feels like you’re speaking with a real therapist during your conversations with this digital robot.
Studies and reports show that customers want quick, frictionless solutions to their problems and answers to their questions. No doubt there are acceptance issues for AI and chatbots. Some customers have always used traditional phone support and have a hard time accepting anything else. But, there is a growing contingent of customers who are increasingly open to new technology, especially if it can enhance their CX. As the technology improves and acceptance grows, chatbots, powered by AI, will have a strong role in customer service and support.
DB: Next, I moved on to the options that are centered on real-life (versus artificial intelligence) support. Joyable is an online platform that supports users with a dedicated real-life coach and a two-month course in CBT. It was developed by a powerhouse team of experts and scientists in the field of therapy. It costs $99 per month, though users can opt for a free, seven-day trial.
Created in 1966 as an early natural language processing (NLP) computer program that emulates a Rogerian psychotherapist, a clinical practice that allows clients to take more action and progression in discussions. This is also known as person-centered therapy. Developed by Joseph Weizenbaum, ELIZA, named after a character in the play Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw, is generally known as the first chatbot.
Created by a developer by the username of Amena-chaan on DeviantArt, Levi is an anime avatar known for his cool, indifferent nature. His popularity even inspired an interactive game created by another developer. Utilizing the same underlying technology as most chatbots, Levi's conversations are archived and accessible for him to use when speaking with new users.
