<br/>One of the contributing factors to climate change is the release of gases, particularly carbon dioxide (CO2), which is amplified by the expanding E-commerce industry. E-commerce enterprises heavily depend on recommender systems as a means to incentivize consumers towards making product purchases. This master's thesis investigates the...

The aim of this research is to evaluate the believability of Lilobot, a conversational agent meant to act as a virtual child for training helpline workers. Numerous aspects of believability are explored by means of a user study involving a questionnaire and interview with 10 participants. Questionnaire results indicate that improvement to the...

Intelligent agents are increasingly required to engage in collaboration with humans in the context of human-agent teams (HATs) to achieve shared goals. Interdependence is a fundamental concept in teamwork. It enables humans and robots to leverage their capabilities and collaboratively work towards a shared goal, fostering the development of...

Behavior support applications aim to provide personalized and flexible support to users in various domains. To achieve this, understanding users' preferences, values, and context is crucial. Creating user models that incorporate users' norms and values has been proposed as a solution to capture the relationship between desired behaviors and...

Augmented Reality (AR) technology could be utilised to assist pedestrians in navigating safely through traffic. However, whether potential users would understand and use such AR solutions is currently unknown. Nine novel AR interfaces for pedestrian-vehicle communication, previously developed using an experience-based design method, were...

Augmented reality (AR) has shown potential in computer-aided surgery. It allows for the visualization of hidden anatomical structures as well as assists in navigating and locating surgical instruments at the surgical site. Various modalities (devices and/or visualizations) have been used in the literature, but few studies investigated the...

To facilitate a smooth integration of drones into the current Air Traffic Management (ATM) system, Unmanned Air Traffic Management (UTM) systems, services and protocols are currently under development. Unlike current ATM, UTM will rely on high levels of automation. This is potentially problematic, because 100% safe and reliable automation under...

Communication is one of the main challenges in Human-Agent Teams (HATs). An important aspect of communication in HATs is the use of explanation styles. This thesis examines the influence of an explainable agent adapting its explanation style to a supervising human team leader on team performance, trust, situation awareness, collaborative fluency...

A lot of models have been proposed to automatically complete code with promising evaluation results when tested in isolation on testing sets. This research aims to evaluate the performance of these models when used by developers when programming. Are these models still useful for actual programming and do developers even want this functionality?...

State-of-the-art machine learning-based models provide automatic intelligent code completion based on large pre-trained language models. The theoretical accuracy of these models reaches 70%. However, the research on the practicality of these models is limited. Our paper will discuss the usefulness of UniXcoder, a machine learning-based cross...

Humans and robots are increasingly working together in human-robot teams. Teamwork requires communication, especially when interdependence between team members is high. In previous work, we identified a conceptual difference between sharing what you are doing (i.e., being transparent) and why you are doing it (i.e., being explainable). Although...

We present the ASA Questionnaire, an instrument for evaluating human interaction with an artificial social agent (ASA), resulting from multi-year efforts involving more than 100 Intelligent Virtual Agent (IVA) researchers worldwide. It has 19 measurement constructs constituted by 90 items, which capture more than 80% of the constructs...

In this article we discuss two studies of children getting acquainted with an autonomous socially assistive robot. The success of the first encounter is key for a sustainable long-term supportive relationship. We provide four validated behavior design elements that enable the robot to robustly get acquainted with the child. The first are five...

After the novelty effect wears off children need a new motivator to keep interacting with a social robot. Enabling children to build a relationship with the robot is the key for facilitating a sustainable long-term interaction. We designed a memory-based personalization strategy that safeguards the continuity between sessions and tailors the...

Performing user interface studies and logging user interactions is commonplace in the Interactive Information Retrieval field (IIR). As a result, the LogUI framework was developed to make logging such interactions an easier task. However, this framework does not come with any visualization tool, requiring the researcher to analyze their data...

In this paper, we report on the multi-year Intelligent Virtual Agents (IVA) community effort, involving more than 90 researchers worldwide, researching the IVA community interests and practice in evaluating human interaction with an artificial social agent (ASA). The joint efforts have previously generated a unified set of 19 constructs that...

Entity cards are a common occurrence in today's web Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs). SERPs provide information on a complex information object in a structured manner. Typically, they combine data from several search verticals. They have been shown to: (i) increase users' engagement with the SERP; and (ii) improve decision making for certain...

The use of spreadsheets in industry is widespread. It is known that spreadsheets have an average life span of five years, and during this life span, they are used on average by thirteen different persons. Consequently, spreadsheets need maintenance, and knowledge about the spreadsheet needs to be transferred from one user to another. To minimize...

Studies involving user interfaces typically involve the capturing and recording (logging) of key user interactions between the user and the system being examined. However, anecdotal evidence suggests that researchers often implement their own logging infrastructure-sometimes in a piecemeal fashion-which can lead to numerous implementation...
