The relationship between AI and mental health is reciprocal and can be a double-edged sword: AI is now increasingly being used as a tool to help mental health researchers and clinicians in understanding how our brain functions. The use of neuroscience-inspired AI holds great promise in discovering new regimes for treatment, diagnosis, and prevention. At the same, we also often encounter real world cases depicting how AI can affect our mental well-being, such as the case of addictive algorithms and how recommender systems can manipulate behaviors.
In an online webinar and an AQuA event (All-Questions-Answered) these two sides of the coin will be explored.
After the webinar on Monday, the series will continue on March 29 with an AQuA event. Here you can ask questions about the link of online algorithms and recommender systems to our mental well-being to the multidisciplinary panel of experts. The forum will tackle how algorithms (in social media and other platforms) impacts us, our behaviors, our way of thinking, and some mental disorders associated with these everyday technologies.
