Psychedelics and Natural Language Processing are an important combination for understanding large amounts of data from psychedelic therapy.
As someone deeply interested in mental health, well-being, natural language processing, analytics, and psychedelics, this topic is one I am following, researching, and contributing to.
We are lucky enough to have several individuals and teams using our software to transcribe and analyze media that contains content around psychedelics, whether those are therapy sessions, clinical trials, public trips reports or trip journals.
With the right tools, amount of data, and objective measures, there is some incredible potential for deriving insights that can be valuable for individuals and treatment as a whole.
In this post, I explore some of the companies working on psychedelics and natural language processing, my experience applying it personally and professionally, the challenges and opportunities, and what the future may hold.
For some more general thoughts on mental health and natural language processing, you can see some articles I’ve produced:
