John - Thanks for postng and yes, we should all be concerned about the tech platform becoming the tech-clinician w/o the requisite professional training. Or, perhaps they are A/B testing with consumers to see which "treatment" "works" "when" etc. We do need the Research Ethics voice here - IRBs/REBs/ELSI -- what do you think?
