The advent of artificial intelligence (AI) brings both promise and peril to the core tenets of existential humanism. While AI has the potential to enhance individual freedom, automate mundane tasks, and contribute to a more interconnected society, concerns arise regarding privacy, autonomy, and the erosion of personal responsibility. The collaboration between humans and AI may lead to meaningful synergies or, if mishandled, to a sense of alienation. Ethical considerations in mental health practices, existential anxieties, and the cultural shifts driven by AI further complicate the relationship between providers and clients. Navigating these complexities requires a careful balance between technological progress and the preservation of existing values and methodologies. In this presentation, Arnaud will give a basic overview of AI history and where it might be heading; Christy will discuss the current and potential uses and ethical concerns in the field of mental health.
