The AI Dilemma: Apollo"

Bradley Claytor

"The AI Dilemma: Apollo" is an immersive design fiction project that explores the intricate relationship between artificial intelligence (AI) and mental health. Through puppetry, screenplay and short film, this project introduces a fictional narrative centred around Apollo, an AI therapy dog, and its role in supporting the mental well-being of the main character, Ted.

By challenging prevailing assumptions about the trajectory of AI, this fiction presents a future where AI therapy dogs like Apollo create a safe space for individuals to freely express their thoughts and emotions. The project fosters inclusivity, nurtures a supportive environment for mental health, and actively works to reduce the stigma associated with seeking help. 

With a focus on cultivating a sustainable and healthier relationship between humans and technology, "The AI Dilemma: Apollo" envisions a world where AI therapy dogs contribute to overall well-being and happiness, offering an alternative source of support and companionship. This innovative design fiction project strives to inspire positive change and prioritise mental health and well-being in our society. Moreover, it invites viewers to get lost in the ethical implication and possibilities of integrating AI in the field of mental health care.
