AI controlled brain implants treat mood disorders

... The team .. funded by the military of the United States' Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) - are working on the software, which is able to record a person's brain activity and use this to help treat mental illness.

... When these [patterns of mood disorders] are detected, they send electrical pulses - or shocks - to the brain to correct the mood disorder. ...

The AI was trialled in the United States in March and it works by scanning the content of Facebook posts and comments for certain phrases that could infer someone was considering committing suicide. ... includes 'Are you ok?' and 'Can I help?' ... ge-hero1-2

Upshot -- whenever you are on any online social media such as Facebook, Twitter, or you are sending any emails over Google, Messenger, or Yahoo, and you are checking on someone who has the flu or pneumonia, do not use the trigger sentences: "Are you okay?" or "Can I help?" or any other sentences that can be mistaken as a suicide prevention tactic. If you do so, that person's accounts will be heavily scrutinized.
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me a sinner.
