  title={Personality Matters! Improving The User Experience of Chatbot Interfaces - Personality provides a stable pattern to guide the design and behaviour of conversational agents},
  author={Tuva Lunde Smestad},
Recent advances in machine learning has contributed to the rebirth of the chatbot. Lately we have seen a rise in chatbot technology being made available on the web and on our mobile devices, and recent reports states that 57 % of companies have implemented or are planning to implement a chatbot in the near future. Chatbots are therefore a big part of an AI powered future, however recent reviews find chatbots to be perceived as unintelligent and non-conversational. Such findings have not slowed… 
Creating chatbots to talk with humans: HCI evaluations and perspectives
This exploratory research seeks to understand, through volunteers' perspectives, if this creation process of chatbots is really as simple as divulged, and problematize certain aspects connected to AI, in the context of a human-computer interaction evaluation.
Towards a Generic Framework for Character-Based Chatbots
A generic framework for building character-based chatbots using the principles of Character Computing based on psychological theorizing is proposed to allow users to create their individual chatbot characters by selecting their preferred character traits.
User Perception of Text-Based Chatbot Personality
This work developed two chatbots that interact with users in a multi-turn conversation and designed them to have distinct personalities along two axes of the Five Factor Model (extraversion and agreeableness).
User Engagement with Chatbots: A Discursive Psychology Approach
De-identified chat logs across 30 conversations with a well-recognized chatbot reveal conversational expectations and behavior of users being similar to those in human-to-human sharing, but greater diversity in the nature of information shared (what they talk about).
This paper presents a literature survey of the chatbot architecture, design, and algorithms used in chatbots, and describes the evolution of chatbots from a primitive model of a smart system.
Considerations on Creating Conversational Agents For Multiple Environments and Users
This paper will consider the elements necessary to create a conversational agent for different types of users, environments, and tasks, and give insight on how to scale the proposed solutions.
Conversational user interfaces also known as chatbots have become widely adopted within the banking sector, as they present numerous advantages such as cost reduction, increased efficiency and
Applying the Character-Based Chatbots Generation Framework in Education and Healthcare
This paper customization the framework modules to build two chatbots for different domains using the same set of chatbot characters to create adaptable chatbots in the future and investigates the effect of a chatbot’s character on its likability and trustworthiness.
A User-Centered Chatbot (Wakamola) to Collect Linked Data in Population Networks to Support Studies of Overweight and Obesity Causes: Design and Pilot Study
The Telegram chatbot Wakamola is a feasible tool to collect data from a population about sociodemographics, diet patterns, physical activity, BMI, and specific diseases and allows the connection of users in a social network to study overweight and obesity causes from both individual and social perspectives.
Implementing an accessible conversational user interface: applying feedback from university students and disability support advisors
A virtual assistant is implemented which is designed to enable students to disclose disabilities and to provide guidance and suggestions about appropriate accessible support, and a trial to evaluate its accessibility and user experience (UX).


An Emotional Talking Head for a Humoristic Chatbot
The research in human-computer interaction on conversational agents, named also chatbots, and natural language dialogue systems equipped with audio-video interfaces has grown, leading to systems capable to perform speech synchronization with an animated face model.

A framework for the assessment of synthetic personalities according to user perception
An Adaptive Personality Model for ECAs
This paper discusses the research at Curtin over the last five years in implementing and evaluating personality models, and proposes an active, adaptive personality model to unify that work.
Voice User Interface Design
This book is a comprehensive and authoritative guide to voice user interface (VUI) design. The VUI is perhaps the most critical factor in the success of any automated speech recognition (ASR) system,
Understanding Your Users: A Practical Guide to User Research Methods
This new and completely updated edition is a comprehensive, easy-to-read, "how-to" guide on user research methods. You'll learn about many distinct user research methods and also pre- and post-method
Conversational Interfaces: Past and Present
This chapter reviews developments in spoken dialog systems, VUI, embodied conversational agents, social robots, and chatbots, and outlines findings and achievements from this work that will be important for the next generation of conversational interfaces.
Providing Gender to Embodied Conversational Agents
The main goal of this work is to understand how gender can be provided to ECAs, and provide a very simple model that allows for existing tools to overcome such limitation, by adding a set of involuntary gender specific movements to the agents behaviour in an automatic manner.
Designing Interactive Systems.
The book explores this continually developing discipline by bringing together the most useful aspects of established practice with newer perspectives, and addresses hot topics such as affective computing, social navigation and computer-supported cooperative work.
