Negative-mood Reduction among HK Youth with Robot

To support Hong Kong youth who may be feeling lonely or confused, the Personal Avatar for Life (PAL) project develops both companion robots for conversation and a robot infrastructure that handles user data securely. The Robot Brain Server employs Artificial Intelligence to analyse user data and respond appropriately, creating a safe environment for self-disclosure and building a high degree of user trust.
