Responsive InTeractive Advocate (RITA)
The University of Kent led and project managed this exciting ground-breaking project to support the UK’s aging population through the use of responsive and interactive avatars. The University of Portsmouth focused on developing the interactive avatar, while Winchester-based company Affective State worked on sensing and forecasting emotional well-being and Glasgow-based We Are Snook focused on the user experience design.
