Psychotherapy is a notoriously hard discipline to practice and perfect due to a lack of ‘standardized patients’. Robert Johansson, Associate Professor of Psychology at Stockholm University 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.
Furhat Robotics is a Conversational AI and Social Robotics startup that has developed the world’s most advanced social robotics platform.
The vision of the company is to build a human-like computer interface that enables people to interact with machines in the same way that humans interact with each other.
