    In the EU Artemis project Smarcos we developed a personal attentive system that supports users in attaining a healthy lifestyle. The system is a persuasive system. Persuasive systems, and especially behaviour change support systems (BCSS) are information systems designed to form, alter or reinforce attitudes, behaviours or an act of complying without using deception, coercion or inducements. BCSS support people in their daily life by providing support by means of a human or digital coach. These systems can support users in coping with chronic diseases like COPD and diabetics, but also to be more physical active.
