Artificial Intelligence in Psychology: 5 Revolutionary Examples (2022)

Artificial Intelligence in Psychology: 5 Revolutionary Examples (1)The first chatbot, ELIZA, was created by MIT’s Joseph Weizenbaum as long ago as 1966.

Named after Eliza Doolittle from George Bernard Shaw’s play Pygmalion, this early conversational software imitated a psychotherapist (Weizenbaum, 1976; Mullins, 2005).

While its intelligence was limited, simply rewording patients’ phrases as questions, Eliza proved incredibly convincing.

Its most famous script, DOCTOR, successfully simulates the renowned psychologist Carl Rogers (ELIZA, n.d.).

Patient: I am unhappy
ELIZA: Can you explain what made you unhappy?

At the time, it was the next step in a much longer journey toward intelligent software and artificial intelligence (AI).

This article explores AI’s recent developments in psychology and its future potential.

The Role of Artificial Intelligence in Psychology

The term AI is typically used to describe both the “technology designed to perform activities that normally require human intelligence” and the multidisciplinary field of science concerned with understanding and developing that technology (Luxton, 2014).

From robots to software distributed across networks, AI is now a commonly used term. And while it can mean different levels of complexity and performance depending on the context and the commentator, it emulates either complex human behavior or specialized intelligent functions.

Most importantly, AI can learn without being explicitly told how to do so.

Psychology, mental health in particular, is one of the more recent areas of focus for AI. As AI lengthens its reach, it is becoming increasingly crucial for psychologists, therapists, and counselors to understand the existing capacity and future potential for the technology to transform mental healthcare.

How can AI help mental health professionals?

(Video) What Is AI Psychology?

Luxton (2014) says that AI can simulate a practitioner, with capabilities beyond its human counterpart.

Indeed, the following examples of advanced technology perceive beyond our human senses to assess patients (Luxton, 2014):

  • Infrared imaging to recognize temperature changes
  • Facial recognition to confirm a patient’s identity
  • Optical sensing to analyze facial expression and eye blinking
  • Vocal analysis to perceive subtle differences in speech characteristics
  • Olfaction (smell) analysis to identify intoxication

While AI can conduct therapy sessions, e-therapy sessions, and assessments autonomously, it can also assist human practitioners before, during, or after sessions.

Physical assessments such as increased heart rate or temperature changes in response to challenging questions can provide valuable and insightful additional data for the clinician.

Not only that, recording data, managing record keeping, and triggering automatic follow-up actions would free up valuable time for the human professional.

AI as an expert system

Expert systems were one of the first uses for AI within the medical field. While not everyone agrees that expert systems qualify as AI, they undoubtedly assist decision making by combining knowledge and expertise from professionals.

While such systems have been around for several decades, their design has moved from predominantly rule-based logic to making decisions based on data mining and fuzzy logic – the cognitive scientists’ term for handling partial truths (Luxton, 2014).

Through enhancements such as adding speech recognition and natural language processing to expert systems, it is not difficult to imagine technology like Siri, Alexa, or Google Assistant offering therapist-like sessions or expert advice at relatively low costs and without clients having to leave their home.

AI provides other such opportunities. Combining its body of expertise with personal records can monitor health conditions and spot potential contraindications for medical treatments.

Additionally, AI-enabled clinical support systems offer increased capacity, handling a greater volume of highly complex data than their human counterparts could manage and making it available anywhere throughout the day. The burden of time-limited mental health resources can be significantly reduced, and AI can provide more focused engagement with those needing it most and when urgently required (Luxton, 2014).

Virtual worlds

Computer-generated simulated worlds, known as virtual reality (VR), offer a safe, cost-effective environment for patients to explore their issues. Through immersion, the environment can be made more real for the individual, tailoring circumstances and dialing stressors up or down.

Virtual companions, including digital pets, also promote wellbeing while managing loneliness in easily accessed environments (Luxton, 2014).

Virtual Reality Therapy can be a safe way to deal with post-traumatic stress disorder, and is discussed in our linked article.

Augmented reality overlays the potential flexibility of VR onto the actual world. It uses the readily available processing power of tablets and smartphones to safely connect individuals with the source of their anxiety or personal coaches.

How clients can heal when confronting their fears is also mentioned in our article about Exposure Therapy.

Computer games

Computer games have successfully increased engagement with reluctant patients and encouraged treatment adherence. By providing a discreet and gamified option for patients, AI-enhanced games can side-step the stigma associated with mental health treatment and provide realistic situations tailored to patients’ needs.

The online computer game Second Lifehas been successfully trialed as a vehicle for virtual coaching and directed gameplay to enable the patient to practice new skills (Linden Research, 2013; Luxton, 2014).

5 Examples of AI Use in Psychology

Artificial Intelligence in Psychology: 5 Revolutionary Examples (2)AI technology that supplements or even replaces the therapist, counselor, or other mental health professional is not in the realm of science fiction or even the near-future; it is available now.

(Video) Computer Scientist Explains Machine Learning in 5 Levels of Difficulty | WIRED

Detection and Computational Analysis of Psychological Signal

The Detection and Computational Analysis of Psychological Signal project uses machine learning, computer vision, and natural language processing to analyze language, physical gestures, and social signals to identify cues for human distress.

This ground-breaking technology assesses soldiers returning from combat and recognizes those who require further mental health support. In the future, it will combine data captured during face-to-face interviews with information on sleeping, eating, and online behaviors for a complete patient view (Defense Applied Research Projects Agency, 2013).

Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory

The Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratoryat Massachusetts Institute of Technology has successfully used AI to analyze digital video and identify subtle changes to an individual’s pulse rate and blood flow, undetectable to the human eye.

While extremely valuable during therapy sessions in uncovering nonverbal cues, it can also monitor trauma patients’ breathing or young babies in distress in hospitals (Hardesty, 2012).

Watson Health

Watson Health, IBM’s AI-enabled analysis tool, is now commercially available and comes loaded with medical literature to serve as both consultant and medical expert.

The incredible aim of this AI is to bring together data, technology, and expertise to stand in for or supplement professional physical and mental healthcare, performing diagnoses and suggesting treatments (IBM, 2020).

RP-VITA

The RP-VITA robot has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to provide remote communication between healthcare providers and patients. It monitors patients’ wellbeing remotely while accessing their medical records.

The system is multidisciplinary, providing support for psychological, neurological, cardiovascular, and critical care assessments and examinations (InTouch Health, 2020).

Mental Health Diagnostic Expert System

Mental Health Diagnostic Expert System uses advanced AI technology to encode expert knowledge of mental health disorders, which it then uses for diagnoses and proposing treatments.

The AI uses a combination of rule-based and fuzzy logic to understand patients’ needs, agreeing on treatment plans that suit their budgets and are appropriate alongside other health conditions (Masri & Mat Jani, 2012).

Combining the benefits of psychological expertise with AI-enabled technology is having a positive impact on patient treatment and healthcare. With the additional benefits of being cost effective and available remotely, it is likely to develop rapidly.

How to Use AI for Psychological Testing

De Mello and de Souza (2019) explored the potential for AI tools to assist data collection, analysis, testing, and evaluation in mental health.

AI technology offers valuable tools for therapy, combining techniques such as data mining (generating new information from deep analysis of large quantities of data) and expert analysis. AI opens up the potential to diagnose existing and potential problems, test, and confirm predictions and treatments.

When used to understand the data from 707 patients with suicidal tendencies in Greater Santiago, Chile, the AI identified a series of factors associated with suicidal ideation and behavior.

The findings led to a series of preventive interventions for at-risk individuals that reduced the risk of suicide and reinforced “psychological wellbeing, feelings of self-worth, and reasons for living” (Morales et al., 2017).

In 2017, Kravets, Poplavskaya, Lempert, Salnikova, and Medintseva created a model that used fuzzy logic to emulate psychiatric diagnoses. It successfully assessed patients and tested its mental health diagnoses based on incomplete knowledge.

Appropriate AI technology provides the means to piece together fragmented information, build mental models, test their validity, and suggest treatments (de Mello & de Souza, 2019).

Using Artificial Intelligence in Cognitive Psychology

Artificial Intelligence in Psychology: 5 Revolutionary Examples (3)Cognitive psychology attempts to understand cognition’s complexity through research, testing, and building models of how the human mind handles and processes complex information during attention, memory, and perception (Zivony, 2019).

(Video) Introduction to Artificial Intelligence

AI and cognitive psychology share similar aims – to understand the nature of intelligent behavior – with the former attempting to build such processes using advanced technology.

And while computational modeling and AI have subtle differences, they are both valuable approaches for understanding the nature of intelligent thinking and providing insights into the growing field of cognitive psychology.

Computational modeling involves “programming computers to model or mimic aspects of human cognitive functioning” (Eysenck & Keane, 2015). Artificial intelligence’s underlying processes, on the other hand, typically bear no resemblance to the mechanisms used by the human brain.

Rather than attempt to develop computational models that help us understand human intelligence, the AI designer’s goal is to produce an outcome that appears intelligent. Such processes do not need to be functionally similar to those of a human.

However, there is one particular model that appears to bridge the gap between the two approaches.

Connectionismwas originally inspired by the network of neurons that exists within the brain. “Connectionist models typically consist of interconnected networks of simple units exhibiting learning” and model cognition with no explicit rules (Eysenck & Keane, 2015).

While the brain may be described as a highly complex neural network, and connectionist models have successfully modeled specific human-like processes (such as face recognition), the jury is still out regarding whether such models explain human cognition.

However, deep neural networks, inspired by cognitive psychology theories and methods, have had some success in explaining how children learn labels for objects and offer a great example of the benefits of combining knowledge and expertise from multiple disciplines (Ritter, Barrett, Santoro, & Botvinick, 2017).

A Take-Home Message

AI offers a promising approach to assist and sometimes replace selected practices involved in mental health assessment and treatment (Fiske, Henningsen, & Buyx, 2019).

The technology has the potential to provide new types of treatment (including virtual and augmented reality, and games) and the ability to engage with populations that are difficult to reach or engage with.

Such innovative approaches can also free therapists and mental health professionals’ time and resources to focus on urgent or more specialist care (Fiske et al., 2019).

However, there are inevitable ethical issues. At present, there is limited guidance on the development of such tools or how to integrate them with the work of health professionals, their existing technology and tools, and regulatory frameworks.

Other considerations when implementing AI solutions include understanding and agreeing on the level of human supervision required before, during, and after engaging with clients. At a minimum, assessment or intervention must respect and protect patient confidentiality and autonomy.

Yet, if risks from accidental or intentional misuse and ethical concerns are managed successfully, AI offers a practical approach to treat mental health on a large scale. It also provides the capacity to capture and analyze large amounts of data, with the potential for greater knowledge and understanding of mental health and the efficacy of treatments (Fiske et al., 2019).
