RITM Digital Team

The research agenda of this interdisciplinary team in Computer Sciences and Economics is to study how connected objects like Google Home influence individuals. The project builds on the concept of “nudge“, a technique encouraging individuals to change their behavior without coercion based on their cognitive biases. The team sets up experiments in the form of vocal interactions with a robot capable of nudging several types of more or less vulnerable populations in order to develop nudge evaluation tools.

This project is developed under the aegis of the HUMAAINE Chair piloted by Laurence Devillers (LIMSI-CNRS), which is the laureate of a €595,084 grant funded by the French National Research Agency (ANR):
