Projektinformationen

This project will contribute to the question of how increasingly common conversations with intelligent machines will influence a) people´s mental model of the system depending on its transparency, b) the human communication culture and c) human relationship building. The research questions cover transparency (what effects emerge when humans communicate with a "black box" for which they have no mental model?), communication (does the fact that the machine is always at people´s service and the user does not need to be polite when talking to machines lead to a brutalization of human dialogue culture?) and relationship building (what kinds of relationships and dependencies develop over time and will they partly be preferred over human-human relationships?). In order to address the research questions, three scenarios will be employed. The first scenario targets the most vulnerable group, i.e. children interacting with conversational devices. The second scenario analyzes adults interacting with a health app which is able to converse with the user and - based on machine learning algorithms - presents suggestions for health-related behaviors. The third scenario will address seniors in ambient assisted living situations.
