BLISS demo: speaking with the computer to make you feel better
We present a demonstration of the BLISS dialogue system that can talk to people in Dutch about their happiness and wellbeing.
We aim to develop language and speech technology that can extract information from the interaction about what makes people happy and makes people feel better.
We offer the opportunity to try out the first baseline version of the BLISS dialogue system. By using the system you can help us collect speech examples that we will use to further develop the system.
