This study conducts a mapping study to survey the landscape of health chatbots along three research questions: What illnesses are chatbots tackling? What patient competences are chatbots aimed at? Which chatbot technical enablers are of most interest in the health domain? We identify 30 articles related to health chatbots from 2014 to 2018. We anal...
Conference Paper
This work introduces a set of quality attributes for chatbots. The selection is grounded on scholarly but also reputed blog references from 2016 and 2017. In addition, attributes should be amenable to be extracted (semi) automatically. On these premises, we consider four attributes: "support of a minimal set of common commands", "foresee language v...
