ー Empath Use Cases ー

NTT docomo Tohoku Reconstruction Project

NTT DoCoMo used Empath in their Tohoku Earthquake reconstruction project to help relief aid workers who felt distressed. Some aid workers attending to the mental healthcare of Tohoku earthquake victims suffered from mental health problems themselves as they heard victims' stories of harrowing experiences. Empath detected workers' negative mood and referred them to proper counseling and therapy. This project received coverage in the Japanese media by news outlets such as Sankei Shinbun.
