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.
Overall: We are now able to leave our Chat on 24/7, when previously we had limited hours (due to staffing) for the Chat. It is still very much a work in progress to ensure the ChatBot has routed to the correct conversations and can sometimes be frustrating to try and figure out why the ChatBot went to a certain scenario over another. The help topics the company provides can point you in the right direction but they are written at a level above the capabilities of a brand new user to bots in my opinion. Determining whether or not no conversation with a client vs a below average conversation with a client (at times) is worth it, will determine whether we continue to renew our monthly subscription.
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.
