We seek participants who have experienced depressive symptoms and are willing to keep daily diaries for 4 weeks by text or speech

Du kan muligvis deltage i dette forsøg hvis du:
  • Er mere end 18 år gammel.
  • Previously or currently diagnosed with an affective disorder (Bipolar, Depression, anxiety or other mood related disorders), own a smartphone, and have internet access

This study aims to understand how conversational agents might be designed to support self-report of health and well-being especially in a diary format using speech interfaces like smart speakers. In particular, we want to investigate the effectiveness of the conversational agent and the engagement in self-reporting practice.

We seek to support this aim by comparing two distinct platforms: a conversational agent (CA) - Sofia, and a web application (WA) designed to support daily diary logging and self-report on a health questionnaire.

As a participant, you will receive one of the platforms to use for 4 weeks in your own home. You will share your feelings and emotions as a daily diary and every second week respond to five questions related to your well-being. 

Upon completion of the study, you will be given a Google Home Mini device for their participation.
