Experimental Investigation for a Human Relationship Formation Support Agent using Information Presentation During Conversation

Abstract

In this paper, we performed an experimental investigation aimed at developing an agent to support the formation of human relationships by supporting the user’s daily communication “casually”, “anytime” and “anywhere”. First, we collected conversations between men and women meeting for the first time, then analyzed what type of support would be effective for the formation of human relationships. Based on the results of this analysis, we performed experiments supporting communication. In the experiment, we provided not only topics to the user during conversation, but also comprehensive presentation of instructions such as expressions, eye contact and gestures. The results confirmed that this significantly improved human relationships after conversation and showed the validity of this support.
