Master thesis - Rehabilitation Project

We propose to use an emotional conversational agent (ECA) in combination with a narrative generation engine issued from interactive storytelling research to provide varied situation. This approach reflects the combination of both role-play and problem solving exercises on which remediation therapies rely, and has the potential to support patient's progress and motivation through the rehabilitation programme.
Supervision : Anne-Gwenn Bosser and Cédric Buche
Collaborations : Hospital Bohars (CHRU Brest, Fr); Teesside University (UK), Intelligent Virtual Environment Lab; Florida International University (USA), Affective Social Computing Lab
