ACCEPTABILITY IN INTERACTION - From Robots to Embodied Conversational Agents


Sylvie Pesty and Dominique Duhaut

Abstract: This paper will propose to increase the traditional definition of system acceptability to take into account the heavy interaction between a man and a real or virtual system. We introduce the notion of “socially credible” which describes the need of emotions and personality in intelligent environment. This notion is measured by experiments using a plush robot Emi and a virtual embodied conversational agent.
