We are interested in getting the views of young adults on how acceptable chatbots are to use and how easy they are to use.


Project Information

Participants required for research

Chatbots are computerised communication systems like Alexa and Google Nest. Chatbots are becoming increasingly popular as ways in which computers may support mental health and suicide prevention.

We are interested in getting the views of young adults on how acceptable chatbots are to use and how easy they are to use.

Ulster University want to understand what concepts such as mental wellness and quality of life mean to you and to study the use of chatbots in relation to supporting mental wellbeing.

As a starting point, we are interested in holding some online focus groups, this would be an online group conversation.

Topics discussed would be around concepts such as mental wellness, quality of life and how digital technologies function and how usable they may be in playing a role in supporting mental wellbeing and suicide prevention.

Chatbots are computerised communication system like Alexa or Google Nest.

  • We would like to show you some chatbots and how to use them.
  • We would then like your views about what you think is useful and what you would change.

It would only take 1-2 hours and would be with a few other young adults in a group.

You will receive a £25 Amazon e-voucher to thank you for your participation.

We are interested in the views of all young adults aged between 18 and 25 years.

However, we would particularly interested if you feel that you are sometimes different to society.

This may be because you come from a poorer area, because you have a physical disability or because you identify as LGBTQI.

This invitation and the study to which it applies have been approved by the School of Psychology Filter Committee.
