AlterEgo is an interdisciplinary collaboration that is investigating a “new robotic-based clinical method” to help people suffering from social anxiety. The scientists believe that lookalike avatars and robots can be a more comfortable interaction for patients, facilitating a more effective therapeutic experience.
According to project lead Krasimira Tsaneve-Atanasova: “This resemblance can be morphological (form of a person), behavioral (his actions), or kinematic (the way he moves).”
