ANN ARBOR - Two University of Michigan experts in the field of artificial intelligence and mental health will be presenting "Artificial Intelligence, Personalized Technology, and Mental Health" in a special edition of "Friday Night AI" at the Ann Arbor District Library's downtown branch on Sept. 27.

AI professor Emily Mower Provost and the director of the Heinz C. Prechter Bipolar Research Program, professor Melvin McInnis, will be addressing the following questions during their thought-provoking presentation:

  • How will AI and personalized technologies fit into the mental health care system?
  • Who benefits? How?
