Understanding the self through embodied AI

Robert Johansson is an Associate Professor of Psychology at Stockholm University and CEO of EAI Lab. He is also an early adopter and one of the most visionary creators on the Furhat platform.

Psychotherapy is a notoriously hard discipline to practice and perfect due to a lack of ‘standardized patients’. Most trainee therapists also tend to learn on the job, which leaves patients dissatisfied when seeing inexperienced therapists. Robert is convinced Furhat is the perfect solution to this problem. With the unparalleled expressivity and conversational capabilities of the Furhat platform, Robert plans to build several virtual standardized patients that can be used to train therapists. 

This product can be used in undergraduate psychology programs, advanced education, hospitals, therapists’ office. It can be used wherever people have the goal of making psychotherapy more effective.
