I just saw this! This is.... stupid... you could use this for mass manipulation and indoctrination into thinking for the agenda. Take advantage of the weak minded!

This we know: Too many people struggle with their mental health in silence, especially at work. The stigma around mental health is still strong.

It’s time to change that. About one in five Americans are depressed, a condition that can wreck a person’s mood, relationships, and productivity. More than half of people suffering from depression haven’t sought any treatment for it in the past year despite the painful consequences.

Enter Silicon Valley techies with a solution that cuts out the middle man —or any man at all. If you can’t (or don’t want to) talk to humans about your problems, why not try a judgment-free chatbot?

Created by a team of Stanford psychologists, WoeBot is a Facebook Messenger bot that’s programmed to monitor your moods by checking in with you daily on how you’re feeling.

Here’s how it works: WoeBot is based on cognitive behavioral therapy principles where you learn to break out of negative patterns by identifying their causes and by putting those negative thoughts in perspective. You can tell WoeBot how you’re feeling and it will offer feedback, and suggest helpful videos and word games.
