Research output: Working paper


In this paper we discuss our road map to design a Dutch spoken conversational agent that helps older adults with self-management of their well-being. We conducted three usability studies with our conversational agent, each time after discussing it with different stakeholders. We discuss the challenges incorporating each stakeholder's wishes and needs whilst iteratively designing our agent.
