  • Relational Artificial Intelligence (AI) Chatbot for App-Based Physical Activity Promotion

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study aims to empirically test the theoretical mechanisms of relational perceptions in the context of building and testing a relational artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot for improving physical activity (PA) behaviors among a sedentary adult population in the U.S. The aim of the study is to build and experimentally test relational capacities of AI chatbot in inducing positive human-AI relationship and leading to higher PA behavior change intention. During the 7-day intervention, the relational chatbot will educate participants on physical activity using 5 types of relational messages during a PA intervention including 1) social dialogue, 2) empathy, 3) self-disclosure, 4) meta-relational communication, and 5) humor. On the other hand, the non-relational chatbot will only deliver PA intervention messages, without relational cues. Relational chatbot condition will be compared to the non-relational chatbot condition to assess its effectiveness. The objective of this study is to test the efficacy of the mobile app intervention leveraging chatbots in increasing participants' relationship perception and physical activity behavior change.
