Seems promising, not sure if this is intentional, but after my first set of interactions with the bot I'm left feeling that this is only going to work after two weeks. This was an immediate downer because: 1. I now feel like I must keep 'feeding the system' for this duration 2. I'm also only looking forward to something good coming off this exercise after two weeks. This isn't a great state to be in, two weeks = two far off :-) This was just a first thought, for all I know, I might just be delighted by something tomorrow. Hope the team can benefit from it. For a cool first interaction however and my belief in the core principle behind this product you have my upvote.
@singhal_shobhit Hello Shobhit! CTO@Woebot. Woebot will continue to give you new CBT teachings each day while helping you be aware of your moods, so you will learn day-by-day. I'm wondering if you can tell me more about your feeling that you won't experience "it working" until 2 weeks? Thank you so much for the feedback!
@woebot @pamelafox Hey sorry, for the delay in answering this. Throughout my on-boarding with the product I kept getting a sense that it's going to ask me how I feel and what I'm doing, what my energy levels are like in order to find a pattern and tell me something. That's what I meant by seeing if it/how it works in 2 weeks or so. Hindsight: my usage dropped massively in a week or two. I'm happy to engage further for any user feedback if it would help. Cheers
Woebot is an automated conversational agent (chatbot) who helps you monitor mood and learn about yourself. Drawing from a therapeutic framework known as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Woebot asks people how they’re feeling and what is going on in their lives in the format of brief daily conversations. Woebot also talks to you about mental health and wellness and sends you videos and other useful tools depending on your mood and needs at that moment. You can think of Woebot as a choose-your-own-adventure self-help book that is capable of storing all of your entries and gets more specific to your needs over time.
The link to the product is incorrect. It should be http://woebot.io/
Sounds interesting, where do you get the resources from?
Great job! We've been working to crack this too so I'm glad to see someone finally managed to pull it off.
