Would you join a conference where only robots are speakers? Do you think that robots and AI will replace humans as speakers? And what if the speakers remotely connect their minds to a robot, but only the body of the robot presents in person?
It might still be a little bit futuristic, but during AI For Good Global Summit in Geneva, I had a chance to listen to a robot who was giving a presentation. From a bigger distance, you might not even recognize that it was just a robot.
The development of 𝐀𝐈 𝐜𝐚𝐧 𝐜𝐚𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐭𝐞𝐜𝐡𝐧𝐨𝐩𝐡𝐨𝐛𝐢𝐚, which is an overwhelming fear of technology and its pace of development. But at the same time, it can be a solution and an 𝐞𝐱𝐜𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐭𝐨𝐨𝐥 𝐭𝐨 𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐱𝐢𝐞𝐭𝐲, 𝐩𝐡𝐨𝐛𝐢𝐚𝐬, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐝𝐞𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧. As a psychologist, I’m happy that tools helping with mental health are more available to everyone.
What a robot speaker can look like?
AI tools for public speaking and mental health
✔️𝐕𝐑 𝐬𝐩𝐞𝐞𝐜𝐡 (practicing public speaking in front of avatars can help with glossophobia- public speaking anxiety)
✔️𝐏𝐚𝐫𝐨 (a fluffy, white dog who reduces patient stress in hospitals and improves their relaxation and motivation)
✔️𝐇𝐚𝐫𝐮 (a social robot designed to make people happy)
✔️𝐈.𝐑.𝐈.𝐒. (a home robot to support older adults Ikigai)
✔️𝐓𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐛𝐨𝐭 (a puppy gathers information and data that can lead to healing for an abused child or someone suffering from post-traumatic stress)
✔️𝐀𝐦𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐚 (a comprehensive VR software for mental health professionals’ therapy sessions with a wide range of immersive environments)
✔️𝐖𝐲𝐬𝐚, 𝐇𝐚𝐩𝐩𝐢𝐟𝐲, 𝐊𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐬𝐮𝐠𝐢, and many more.
Some of us are scared about the upcoming future because of 𝐟𝐞𝐚𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐀𝐈 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐭𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐫 𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐣𝐨𝐛𝐬. Maybe you think AI will create books, graphics, or write better code than you. And like with a knife- it can cut the food or kill. It’s always a question of how we want to use it.
Hi. Welcome to my blog 🙂 I’m a psychologist and public speaking trainer. In 2021 I was chosen as one of the top 11 public-speaking coaches worldwide 2021, according to the Coach Foundation ranking. I work as a TEDx coach and Head of Speakers at TEDxZurich. I also help, among others, lawyers, vocalists, actors, lecturers and business people in preparation for their speeches in front of hundreds of people in the audience, as well as in conducting small meetings or presentations. For many years I worked on controlling the stage fright that kept me awake at night. I was singing and dancing in a Cuban musical. I have always wondered how to manage the internal critic, not to worry about the opinion of others, and how to build a real sense of confidence on stage. Now I know the answer.
Recently, I have given countless interviews, which made me aware of the importance of confidence in front of the camera. Having been involved in music since the age of 10, I know how stressful it can be to present to a wider audience. By combining my business and music experience, I can guide you through the process of changing direction towards your dreams. Based on my vast stage experience, I have gained the ability to provide adequate tools and methods of coaching that will support your development.
