Brain Fog

Are we finally reaching the point where technology is able to troubleshoot human behavior. Technology is getting smarter and we are the reason. Now what exactly does this mean or how should this make you feel asked the text on the computer?

AI Therapy

  • The premise is quite simple actually.
    • You have a problem or issue with your mental health, and input it into a website, application or a machine.
    • The artificial intelligence then discusses your issue with you, hoping to resolve the problem.
  • The science behind it is rather complicated
    • Essentially it works using “Deep Learning”, which uses algorithms to factor responses based on past applications and uses/data .
    • Deep artificial neural networks are used to mimic the properties of human minds.
  • Although most of this technology is in it’s initial stages, at this stage it shows much promise.
    • Some of the benefits include avoidance of long wait lists, freedom from stigma and lower costs.
  • Examples where you can find AI therapy include Character.AI and Replika.AI. Which will be featured in a YouTube video that we have coming out next week.

Artificial intelligence means to make a home in the modern way of life. Should it be welcome is the question?

  • From these statistics, it is clear that many are willing to welcome these technologies with open arms.
    • Among the benefits found include
      • Making work more easier and efficient
      • Allows for one to take on new tasks
      • Security in future business endeavors.
      • Better use of big data models.
  • About $7.2 billion is made in revenue from processing patient data. And also $5.1 billion is made from medical imaging analysis. These are the most prevalent uses of AI in medicine today.

Life In Actuality

According to Melvin M. Vopson, a renowned physicist, our reality may in fact be a simulation. As if mental health did not have enough conspiracies. Here is the story and how you can support his crowdfunding.

  • He writes in an essay for The Conversation, that mass can be represented as both energy and information.
    • This theory believes that mass exists as informational bits.
    • He contends that information could be a fifth form of matter after solids, liquid, gases, and plasmas.
  • What would this mean?
    • If true, life could very well be an existing string of code.
    • He writes a “simulated universe would contain a lot of information bits everywhere” and that those bits would “represent the code.”.

The life as a simulation theory is not that new, it has been formed for science fiction since the 1960’s by Isaac Asimov in Jokester and formal modern research has been done since 2003. It’s been present in regular discourse. I know for me this is another troubling reason for anxiety.
