Resumen

RIVERA ESTRADA, Jairo Esteban  y  SANCHEZ SALAZAR, Diana Vanessa. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE: REPLACING THE HUMAN BEING IN PSYCHOTHERAPY?. Escritos - Fac. Filos. Let. Univ. Pontif. Bolivar. [online]. 2016, vol.24, n.53, pp.271-291. ISSN 0120-1263.  http://dx.doi.org/10.18566/escr.v24n53.a02.

The current techno-scientific revolution has transformed the concepts of person and human being. Techno-scientific developments raise questions about our very own humanity and bring again the Übermensch, about whom Nietzsche once spoke, for discussion. Technology has increased the desire to modify our human condition, aiming for the perfection of the physical, intellectual and psychological abilities. Different sciences and disciplines have had the necessity to adapt themselves to these techno-scientific transformations. Psychology has not been the exception and, because of that, a new paradigm of approaching the human mind has been recently established. Concepts such as cybertherapy, virtual reality therapy to treat patients with phobias, and the use of Artificial intelligence have revolutionized Psychology. Therefore, the purpose of the article is to establish whether the use of Artificial intelligence in Psychotherapy actually contributes to the improvement of human beings by making possible progress within the field of Mental Health Care or, on the contrary, it poses a risk to humanity, which might face the possibility of replacing human therapists with intelligent machines.

Palabras clave : Technoscience; Artificial Intelligence; Psychotherapy; Empathy; Behavioral Psychology.
