User Evaluation of Conversational Agent H. C. Andersen

Niels Ole Bernsen, Laila Dybkjaer

University of Southern Denmark, Denmark

The Hans Christian Andersen (HCA) system is an example of a new generation of embodied conversational characters which are aimed to faithfully represent a familiar historical individual and carry out human-style conversation as that individual would have done had he or she lived today. A first prototype of fairytale author HCA was tested with representative users in January 2004. This paper reports on the user test of the second prototype which was done in February 2005, focusing on the structured user interview results.
