Persuasion Strategies for Computers as Persuasive Technologies

  title={Persuasion Strategies for Computers as Persuasive Technologies},
  author={R. Cheng},
Similar to human persuaders in our society, persuasive computing technologies can influence people’s attitudes and bring some constructive changes in many domains such as marketing, health, safety, environment and so on. Since the study of computers as persuasive technologies was introduced at CHI 97 as a new research area, more valuable studies have been done in this relatively unexplored area. Many persuasion strategies have been devised, applied and evaluated. In the paper, several… Expand

On The Design of User Experience Based Persuasive Systems
The contribution of this paper is proposing a new and promising research direction for building persuasive systems that take the user feedback as a key element in the persuasion process. Expand
Persuasive Technology. Designing for Future Change: 15th International Conference on Persuasive Technology, PERSUASIVE 2020, Aalborg, Denmark, April 20–23, 2020, Proceedings
The results show that when using the same persuasive technique, the nature of the application domain affects the way users got persuaded by that technique, and suggest that the application area, as a contextual dimension, is an important factor that should be taken into consideration when designing persuasive systems.

A Model of Persuasion for Speaking Rate Adaptation
Proper speaking rate is a key attribute of effective communication. Emerging persuasive technologies use computers as a tool to induce human behavioural and attitude changes. This thesis establishedExpand

Investigation of the Social Predictors of Competitive Behavior and the Moderating Effect of Culture
The findings suggest that designers of gamified applications can employ Reward, Social Comparison and Competition as co-persuasive strategies to motivate behavior change for both cultures, as the susceptibilities of users to Reward and Social Comparison are predictors of their susceptibility to Competition.

Using Handheld Touch Screen Enabled Devices and Persuasive Game Mechanics to Teach Quadratic Functions
Research has shown that many students are not interested in learning mathematics; they find it difficult to understand, irrelevant and uninteresting; this thesis explores elements of computer games that may satisfy children’s learning and motivates students to learn mathematical concepts. Expand
Motivational affordances and personality types in personal informatics
This poster investigates how various affordances in gamified personal informatics applications affect motivation levels to track and achieve goals for users with different personality types. Expand


Persuasive computers: perspectives and research directions
The study of computers as persuasive technologies (called “captology”) was introduced at CHI 97 as a new area of inquiry and seven directions for further research and design are proposed. Expand
The landscape of persuasive technologies
The landscape of persuasive technologies is categorized along four distinct axes—domains, users, form factors, and strategies—for delivering their messages of change to help computer professionals understand this new type of technology in a positive way. Expand
Toward an ethics of persuasive technology
The exploration of the ethics of persuasive technologies seeks to begin establishing a first set of principled guidelines for their design and implementation. Expand
Put your best face forward: anthropomorphic agents, e-commerce consumers, and the law
It is concluded that developers must focus agent design on consumer welfare, not technical virtuosity, if legal and ethical perils are to be avoided. Expand
Just-in-Time Technology to Encourage Incremental, Dietary Behavior Change
Using a participatory design process, preliminary interviews have helped to establish 10 design goals and a prototype of a tool that encourages better dietary decision making through incremental, just-in-time motivation at the point of purchase is created. Expand
What would they think?: a computational model of attitudes
A novel method for automatically modeling a person's attitudes and opinions, and a proactive interface which offers the just-in-time perspectives of people whose opinions the authors care about, based on whatever the user happens to be reading or writing are presented. Expand
Infant Simulator Lifespace Intervention: Pilot Investigation of an Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Program
This quasi-experimental study of 48 high school students clearly demonstrates the impact of a very realistic infant simulator on adolescents' attitudes and beliefs about what their future parentingExpand
Internet advertising strategy by comparison challenge approach
The ad effect of comparison challenge is found to be substantially better than banners and similarity-based comparisons, providing customers with better performance and reduced prices. Expand
Explaining collaborative filtering recommendations
This paper presents experimental evidence that shows that providing explanations can improve the acceptance of ACF systems, and presents a model for explanations based on the user's conceptual model of the recommendation process. Expand
