Personalized support with ‘Little’ Data

Peter Bednar, Peter Imrie, Christine Welch

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In this paper we look at opportunities to support the creation of value
for all through the use of end-user-owned Virtual Personal Assistant. We use a
chat-bot as example of technology with a possibility for transferring and diffusing
new functionality, features and capabilities. This category of software can
create potential value through its AI and natural language processing combined
with emulation and imitation of emotional engagement which is personal,
private and as such allows for intimate contextual relevance to be developed.
