Behaviour-based Language-Interactive Speaking Systems (BLISS)

Introduction:
The increasing availability of large amounts of (personal) data (Big Data) and the performance boost of advanced Human Language Technologies (HLT) hold great potential for self-management and empowerment in health and wellbeing. The topic of the project is the combination of text mining of Dutch written and spoken client data with the design of an intelligent, personalized Dutch spoken dialogue system (SDS) that communicates with clients in an accessible manner to facilitate their self/joint-management of health and wellbeing. The project is grounded in a broad conceptualization of health and wellbeing as happiness. This NWO’s (Dutch Research Council) Data2Person project is running from March 2019 to September 2022, under project number D2P.2017.018.
