Dr Gemma Sharp and her team launch world first body image chatbot, “KIT”

Our NHMRC Early Career Senior Research Fellow and Clinical Psychologist, Dr Gemma Sharp, and her Body Image Research Group team have launched the world’s first body image chatbot, “KIT”. A chatbot is a computer program that learns to have human-like conversations. KIT was developed in collaboration with our national body image and eating disorder support organisation, Butterfly, and built by Proxima. KIT educates people on body image issues and eating disorders as well as teaches coping skills. KIT also provides support to people who are taking care of a loved one who is experiencing these issues.
