Hello Humans!

Join us for our August event for a discussion about how Chat and AI technology is transforming psychology.

We are excited to have Dr Christine Grové talk about her involvement in developing and piloting Ash, the Monash Chatbot, a companion for at-risk young people in secondary schools. This presentation will discuss how Ash is being developed with young people, tech industry partners, and health care professionals. She will talk about the UX/UI research, how they created Ash's personality and it's character design, finishing with the AI conversation design and content development. This project is funded by the Deans Early Career Researcher Award.
