Multimodal and Multicultural Field Agents: Considerations for “outside-the-lab” Studies

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Multimodal and multicultural agent technology has matured so far that is becomes feasible to think about moving out of the laboratory for real-world field tests and deployments. Moving out of the lab poses a number of challenges that are not present in controlled settings and requires to thorough prepare for the unpredictability of the field. Fortunately, we do not have to start from scratch but can re-use some of the methods developed in the HCI community for studies outside the lab. In this chapter, we are going to explore the challenges associated with field studies and review some of the existing methods and their suitability for studies with multimodal and multicultural agents. Care is one of the application scenarios for multimodal and multicultural agents that is discussed in this book. Thus, we will also investigate ethical concerns related to field studies with vulnerable users.
