Alison Darcy: Robot Empathy

With Alison Darcy, President & Founder, Woebot

Alison is a clinical research psychologist and health tech visionary dedicated to creating smart, scalable and accessible mental healthcare solutions. Her work to explore how digital treatments can help solve human problems began more than 20 years ago, when she created one of the first online support groups for people with eating disorders.

In this episode, Alison reflects on the power of technology to empower patients and caregivers outside of the clinical setting. We discuss the value of AI mental health support as a tool for breaking barriers of access and stigma.
