Created as an Artificial Intelligence (AI) coach for behavioural and mental health, Wysa offers evidence-based techniques through empathetic, anonymous conversations, the company said in a statement.

"Our technology passively detects behavioural health issues from smartphone sensors and engages them through chat," said Ramakant Vempati, Co-founder.

Wysa supports a variety of behavioural health use cases, including anxiety, smoking cessation, diabetes and disability support, to reduce healthcare costs and improve adherence.
