Grant Activity:
Broadening horizons: using curiosity to diversify behaviour
Purpose:
This project aims to explore how interactive systems can encourage their users to try new things. This is made possible by recent developments in artificial intelligence that can estimate what will make users curious. This project expects to generate new knowledge about how interactive technology can encourage diverse behaviour by stimulating curiosity. Expected outcomes include a framework for how to design interactive systems that encourage users to try new things, and a greater theoretical understanding of how to diversify user behaviour.
