Abstract

In today's fast-paced, technology-driven world, physical presence is no longer necessary, and since the covid-19 pandemic, most operations have been virtual, and with many people working from home, leading to social isolation, and there has been a steady decline in social interaction over the last few decades, which can adversely affect mental and physical health. The loss of a family member, the loss of a job, divorce, or financial hardship can all result in social isolation, discrimination, and a lack of social support. Due to these factors, many people suffer from depression, anxiety, and a variety of other diseases. To overcome this problem, we must be happier in our lives, engage in more social interactions, and be more culturally oriented. Encourage the patient to participate in the surrounding activities, events, functions and share with him the positive and happiest content that can be found on social media so that he can engage in those activities as well. In this chapter, we will discuss how robotic process automation and machine learning technology will improve the efficiency of this process. Robots will analyze social media videos, texts, and messages for sentiment analysis, user recommendations, and social network analysis, and share filtered happy context messages with emotionally depressed individuals. Virtual reality, online communities, and social media can facilitate mental health support, cultural engagement, and creative expression. As their mental health and happiness improve, they can make a greater contribution to society.
