|Abstract: ||Nowadays, there is a tendency for most of the developed countries abort the method
of using GDP (Gross Domestics Product) to evaluate the living standard of their
citizen, in stead, they prefer evaluating their happiness level by means of GHI (Gross
Happiness Index)1 because this reason, evaluating one’s happiness is becoming the
recent hot issue that there is a increasing number of sociologists and psychologists, or
even economists are carrying a lot of research topics on it. So this year long project is
going to explore how information technology is help to investigate such a hot issue.
The most common method for psychological evaluation is using questionnaire.
The problem of traditional online questionnaire is that clients are easily bored by the
plain text interface and such a long and hard coded question system. It will badly
affect the result that is collected and make an incorrect judgment.
In this project we are going to simulate a group of software experts which has it own
theory on the definition of happiness. Each expert will flow some questions to consult
the client. Without the help of others, the being interviewed client can finish the
interview by interacting with those animated agents. In such an environment client are
interested in answering the questions and more likely to provide proper answer that
are truly reflect their mental state.|
