Members of the Neuroscience, Ethics and Society group, Gabriela Pavarini, Jessica Lorimer, Arianna Manzini and Ilina Singh have been commended in the OxTalent 2018 Public Engagement Award.

OxTalent recognised 'Can your phone be your therapist? Young people’s ethical perspectives on Chatbot Therapy' as ‘an excellent example of co-production between scientists and young people [and] for the true partnership at the centre of this project, which showcased brilliantly how research is enhanced by including its ‘subjects’ in the process.’

OxTalent congratulated members of our young people’s advisory group and the BeGOOD team for using this work towards to real change in the way that chatbots are used.
