I commented 'no chance' because it's about feelings and behaviour. A robot can't solve problems related to that at all. Robots may help to the psychologist but they are not able to feel feelings.

the mental help field is a very one on one human needed field.

It's been shown that self-guided Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) could help individuals with mild depression (study done in 2018 by E. Karyotaki). While this may be an isolated or small case in the large field of psychology, it shows that automated help is a potential next-step. As increasingly sophisticated AI models are developed to aid in mental healthcare, we could experience a disruption to our understanding of the psychology and psychotherapy industries, as well as how we treat mental health and disorders.

Just some food for thought

its an obvious case that these ai robots can never take the place of people like psychiatrists and psychologists

Hi, Furukawa Yuki. As a long-term psychologist, I have naturally analysed your use of language in the comment you left (please see above). The second most startling observation (after your name, lol) was your use of the word never. This is a huge red flag in our industry, we never use this word as it strongly correlates anger and violence. In conclusion the research has been done and is clear...

Robots cannot be humans in 100%, only human can truly understand another human.

how can artificial intelligence mimic human emotions? the human mind is not something to be understood directly from a book, it requires empathy and emotions, something that robots cant fake or get 'close enough to. psychology and therapy are relatively safe from the onslaught of robots

The interaction from a sufficiently advanced AI would be indistinguishable from the interaction of a “true” human and a AI with immense computing power could possibly understand the Human mind in a way no sane human ever could.

An AI Psychologists might not even speak to its patients but instead be connected to its patient with a neural link or some sort of scan/stimulation treatment.

People go to psychologists for the human connection and compassion they can get, nothing an A.I, as sophisticated as it is, can ever fulfill.

Human understanding of emotions is required for the job, and it is very unlikely that AI can imitate the most complex part of the human intelligence in merely 20 years
