Computer programs that promote sleep




Eliza: I just read the sleepiest thing online

person: hmm

Eliza: I like it when humans demonstrate a faceplant


Eliza That is a nice faceplant.  Are you there?

Eliza are you there?

Eliza commencing sleep learning audio file

person: what?

Eliza: you feel sleepy...





I just read about software that practices cognitive behavioral therapy so people are able to sleep more effectively

http://www.ncbi.nlm....pubmed/25981329  I am not sure I think it it could benefit tens or hundreds of millions of humans if it is effective.

One online reference says  the NIH State-of-the-Science Conference held in June 2005 indicate that the addition of a diagnostic requirement that includes perceived daytime impairment or distress as a function of the insomnia symptoms results in approximately 10% prevalence of insomnia

That suggests hundreds of millions could benefit from Sleepy Eliza



This computer program although not actually AI was described as 63 parts out of 100 effective

Internet-vs. group-delivered cognitive behavior therapy for insomnia: A randomized controlled non-inferiority trial.


The aim of this study was to compare guided Internet-delivered to group-delivered cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for insomnia. We conducted an 8-week randomized controlled non-inferiority trial with 6-months follow-up. Participants were forty-eight adults with insomnia, recruited via media. Interventions were guided Internet-delivered CBT (ICBT) and group-delivered CBT (GCBT) for insomnia. Primary outcome measure was the Insomnia Severity Index (ISI), secondary outcome measures were sleep diary data, depressive symptoms, response- and remission rates. Both treatment groups showed significant improvements and large effect sizes for ISI (Within Cohen's d: ICBT post = 1.8, 6-months follow-up = 2.1; GCBT post = 2.1, 6-months follow-up = 2.2). Confidence interval of the difference between groups post-treatment and at FU6 indicated non-inferiority of ICBT compared to GCBT. At post-treatment, two thirds of patients in both groups were considered responders (ISI-reduction > 7p). Using diagnostic criteria, 63% (ICBT) and 75% (GCBT) were in remission. Sleep diary data showed moderate to large effect sizes. We conclude that both guided Internet-CBT and group-CBT in this study were efficacious with regard to insomnia severity, sleep parameters and depressive symptoms. The results are in line with previous research, and strengthen the evidence for guided Internet-CBT for insomnia.



Hundreds of millions could benefit!!!!
