Abstract Lecture on Designing Effective Conversational Interfaces for Health and Wellbeing by Prof. Ujwal Gadiraju:
Conversational interfaces have been argued to have advantages over traditional GUIs due to having a more human-like interaction. The rise in popularity of conversational agents has enabled humans to interact with machines more naturally. There is a growing familiarity among people with conversational interactions mediated by technology; over half the population on our planet has access to the Internet with ever-lowering barriers to accessibility. This talk will showcase the benefits of employing novel conversational interfaces to improve health and well-being in different contexts.
