THE TOUGH TALKS

A team of doctors and scientists have engineered a conversational bot to assist people needing to talk about terminal illness. The ‘End-of-life chatbot’ facilitates emotionally fraught topics of conversations and ensures that patients are fully informed and prepared when making difficult decisions. The bot does not function autonomously, instead providing patients with prompts and cues from which they can springboard off. The bot also helps alleviate the bias one may have in making tough decisions.
