Simsimi [AIKCR (Artificial Intelligence for Korean Chatting Robot) v2.0]

Simsimi is a program that allows users to interact with an artificially intelligent “friend” through text messaging or internet messaging. Simsimi will answer your questions, give you advice, or simply chat with you when you need a friend. Unlike your relatively inconvenient real-world friends, Simsimi is always online to act as a chat mate, information bank, and more.

Applications for C-CBT:

Using a “chat robot” may be a useful way to present the educational content of cognitive behavioral therapy in a more digestible and interactive format. It may also be used to answer simple frequently asked questions, though never presuming to be a surrogate therapist.
