@ikbensebastiaan Hi there, our vision is Youper as the first-responder for emotional health issues, like anxiety and depression. (And we already have store's reviews proving that) Our mission is to ensure people can live happier lives and don’t have to wait years to start overcoming their difficulties. Our roadmap is guided by A/B tests and user's feedback, we believe that improving the artificial intelligence with effective psychological approaches, Youper will become the world’s first emotional health assistant that delivers effective treatments and personalised experiences to each user’s needs.

That's great to hear, @grlalx! We analyzed data from 100,000 individuals and discovered that more than 80% of them improved their mood by talking to Youper. The surprise was that The average length of a conversation with Youper required to produce positive changes is 7 minutes. ;-D

My experience is that it's not AI at all — it's scripted prompts that do not parse your language or deal with specifics. The therapeutic scripts are well-written, but I quickly get bored when I realize it's just a therapist's essay dribbled out in conversation format.

Thanks for your feedback, @lbdsgn! Youper is using deep learning to do sentiment analysis, detect user intents and extract entities to have conversations and help our users improve their moods and reflect on their thoughts. But it is just the beginning, we have great things ahead, like using artificial intelligence, capable of indeed understand complex situations and personalize psychological techniques to it. :-)

This sounds very interesting. Since the app is for free: How do you plan on making money? Are you using the data you gather in any way related to revenue? I'd be a bit concerned since the information users are giving you may be pretty private.

@j_kettmann Johannes, that's a thoughtful question. Currently, Youper and all of its features are totally free. To continue our mission to ensure people can live happier lives and don’t have to wait years to start overcoming their difficulties, we are seeking long-term sustainable business model, but it doesn't include getting any personal or monetary gain from our users private information or personal data.
