Hey guys,

IBM Watson is at it again, this time trying to diagnose mental health conditions from a few minutes of a patient's speech! Not only will this result in more accurate diagnoses but it will also help objectify psychiatric diagnoses, which may now seem quite arbitrary to the average person. With Watson checking up on you from the privacy of your home, this may also mean you will need to see a mental health professional less often, which will drive down healthcare costs. IBM said in 2017 that this software will reach our hospitals in 5 years, so if you do the math we have only 3 more years to wait!
