What Can Your Avatar Tell the Doctor? (bibtex)
by Morie, Jacquelyn and Kang, Sin-Hwa
Abstract:
The goal of our study is to explore a functioning virtual self that can present salient information about our health. We investigate several types of connectivity between a user and his/her animated character representation (also referred to as an avatar). We aim to find various forms of avatar connection with its user to address the value of avatars in health care applications. We propose an additional variation on an existing categorization of avatar-self associations. We specifically examine the potential of the biologically instrumented end of the avatar connectivity continuum.
