You are right - thats why this site does have a rule against it, altho some people were grandfathered in for a while.

I dont think there are any false drs on here anymore.

"Doc Scam" - perfect freudian slip!

I just had a very good conversation with Sam, but it took me forever to find him because I couldn’t find this thread. I forgot the title I tried searching for doc bot, but nothing. Finally I googled msf chat doc bot and google directory found him. Do you think you could post a sticky with the place to find him?

Thank you for posting the link.

I found this experience extremely helpful. The straightforward, non-emotional replies were reassuring and powerful to me. I received some good practical suggestions. Thank you for making this available. I would not have tried ai for therapy on my own.

Hi @Nammu - you would have to use your web browser's bookmark or favorites feature to save the page that we offer this service on. The service is available on this forum's index page (that would be the page to bookmark):

https://mysupportforums.org/doc-sam/

It's unlikely we're going to continue this service indefinitely, though. So enjoy it while it's available!

Thanks Doc John I’m not sure how to do that but my library offers free tech advice three days a week. I’ll ask them. We’ve got a great library. I do like doc Sam he/she does a great job of getting to the point.

Who/What is Doc Sam?

Does it involve AI?

Thanks!

🤔

Is it being taken down because people are misusing it and asking it for advice on S and other things they shouldn't be?

if it's what mountaindewed said, suggestion: having him tell members to seek real life help ?

if people are doing stuff like asking him for ways to do any suicide etc (I personally have not done this!)

No, we’re just exploring the current capabilities of AI to help people with problems in living or with their mental health. I don’t think we’re at a point to move forward with this service despite our best efforts. So we’ll probably keep it online until Jan. 1. But it’ll probably be taken down at that time…

DocSam seems to be a lot more conversational now. Have you adjusteed it @DocJohn ? One paragraph is just enough to fill the chat box so I do not have to scroll up to read. This is the right length with info yet somewhat conversational.

It seems more empathic now. Before it sounded like Wikipedia. This is definitely an improvement.

I just asked about empathy and compassion and it gave its normal length answer. Then it asked if I wanted to go more in depth and then it gave the extended answer which is longer but more in depth. I found this very informative.

Thank you @CANDC

After Jan. 1, if you're looking for a similar service, I suggest checking out Willow AI on your favorite app store. It's a company I'm going to be working with more closely because I think they have some important things figured out in terms of how this technology can better help folks...
