PT Register now This chat provides a forum for patients to address the stresses and triumphs shared by those living with NHL.
This chat is open to discuss any issue related to living with myeloma: a new diagnosis, treatment decisions, relapse, treatment side effects, emotional toll, fatigue, clinical trials, living with uncertainty, etc.
According to Tay's About page, the chat bot was built "by mining relevant public data and by using AI and editorial developed by a staff including improvisational comedians." Anonymized public data is Tay's primary data source, the page says.
The bot is targeted at the 18-to-24 age group because that cohort represents "the dominant users of mobile social chat services in the US," the About page says.
In these public chat rooms, users can chat with many different users at the same time or just invite that special someone to a private chat.
In a 3D chatroom, users can create their own personal avatar, move through the 3D space and chat with many different users.
The 3D space is a very modern way for users to communicate.
Each chat is moderated by an oncology social worker.
The role of the moderator/facilitator is to provide support and guide conversation, as needed, throughout the chats.
