  • Date: 17.12.2021
  • The German broadcaster ARD recently published a documentary about robots as our partners of the future. The documentary featured our doctoral researcher Florian Onur Kuhlmeier, who is designing a chatbot to treat depression in youth (CADY). He spoke about why such a chatbot is necessary, how humans can form relationships with chatbots, what the project's roadmap looks like and how large language models (such as GPT-3) will enable the next generation of intelligent chatbots to support mental health. The documentary was recorded in the KD2Lab. Florian and the CADY project are funded by the Stiftung der Deutschen Wirtschaft (SDW) as part of their PhD scholarship programme.
