Designing social interactions with animated avatars and speech output for Product Recommendation Agents in electronic commerce

Lingyun Qiu
This dissertation first investigates the importance of choosing appropriate demographic embodiments for a humanoid PRA. The two demographic variables that have been assessed are ethnicity and gender.  ...  In addition, the "match-up" effects of ethnicity appear to be more significant among female users than among males.  ...  Therefore, both "persona-effect" and "modality-effect" are shown to be effective in anthropomorphic PRA design.  ...
