    Abstract

    This paper presents progress and challenges in developing a platform for multi-character, argumentation based, interaction with a group of virtual coaches for healthcare advice and promotion of healthy behaviours. Several challenges arise in the development of such a platform, e. g., choosing the most effective way of utilising argumentation between the coaches with multiple perspectives, handling the presentation of these perspectives and finally, the personalisation and adaptation of the platform to the user types. In this paper, we present the three main challenges recognized, and show how we aim to address these.
