HyperHack-2023 - OMM_One-MinuteMeditations_Your_AI_Meditation_Companion

Use Case Description

The solution proof-of-concept we built intends to address mental health & wellness specifically in the area of mindfulness. To achieve this, we have developed a UiPath App that generates a personalized guided meditation session with a click of a button. The UiPath technologies (Apps, Studio, Orchestrator, Integration Service, Attended Robot, Assistant) integrate with generative AI leader OpenAI ChatGPT (for the meditation content) and ultra-realistic text-to-speech service provider PlayHT (for the soothing AI voice). AIVA.ai was used to generate soothing music. The service is delivered to the user via UiPath Apps and launched with the help of UiPath Assistant. As a result, a non-intrusive, non-judgmental, bite-size and accessible solution is made available for humans who could use a personalized guided meditation at any point of their day. In conclusion, this is not a direct alternative to seeking professional help but could foster a healthy habit of mindfulness and provide immediate relief for some users.

Aligned with UiPath’s “A Robot for Every Person” approach, we built a solution POC that uses the UiPath platform and Integrations with Generative AI. It is a UiPath App that produces personalized meditations with one click (choose emoji or type the context). With a Process designed in Studio, the Attended Robot takes in the parameters, generates the guided meditation real-time using prompt-engineering (one of the moonshot challenges in this year’s HyperHack) with generative AI and launches it for the user.

We call this solution OMM (One-Minute Meditations) - Your AI Meditation Companion.

Problem Statement:
Depression and anxiety are major mental health challenges that have become increasingly common in the modern world, affecting approximately 264 million and 284 million people worldwide, respectively. 33% of adults worldwide are suffering from stress. Factors like social isolation (especially in a post-pandemic world), work pressures, financial instability, and the impact of technology and social media contribute to the vulnerability to mental health issues.

In the US alone, good professional mental health support costs upwards of 100 USD per session. Everywhere in the world, there is a social stigma attached to getting mental health help.

The key feature of the solution is generating a unique guided meditation experience personalized to the user needs for each session.

The solution speaks to a universal human experience and can help nudge users towards a healthy habit of meditation and promote mindfulness (empirical evidence says mindfulness has positive cognitive benefits).

Some users may even experience an immediate effect and/or relief right after a 1-minute session.
