When Peter Hames struggled with insomnia, he couldn’t get access to any treatment other than sleeping pills. Out of “desperation,” he said, Peter self-administered a cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) course and within weeks was sleeping like a baby. That experience led to the development of Sleepio, an app which uses artificial intelligence to deliver digital cognitive behavioral therapy to improve user’s sleep. I

Peter applied his background in experimental psychology and technology to co-found Big Health, a digital therapeutics (DTx) company whose mission is to “help millions back to good mental health.” With 53 peer-reviewed papers and 13 randomized control trials, Big Health is also one of the only DTx companies in the world with an evidence base of its size, rigor, and quality.
