Electronic Quit Smoking Coach

PIs: Carrie Heeter, Jim Anthony, Brian Winn
Lead Designer, Geraud Plantegenest

Starting as an MA thesis project by Geraud Plantegenest, we are developing an electronic quit smoking agent based on the live telephone coaching system known as Quit the Nic. We seek to assess the impact of an electronic agent to perform a similar function as a live human. Our design draws upon the Captology writings of B.J. Fogg and on research about pedagogical agents.
