Virtual assistants and social cues: retail interactions and consumer experience

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

This paper describes a multi-disciplinary approach toinforming the design of a Virtual Assistant (VA) for use ina self-service checkout (SSCO). SSCO transactions requirehigh levels of attention as people attempt to performmultiple tasks in the shortest possible time. This is ofteneffortful, affecting performance and satisfaction. One proposed solution is a VA to help guide users’ attention torelevant areas. This paper discusses three key positiveoutcomes to cueing attention with a VA. It also highlightsthe advantage of adopting a multi-disciplinary perspectiveto providing solutions to business problems in a modernretail context.
