Samenvatting

Sustainable living is to a large extent the outcome of how consumers use the technology surrounding them. Seen from this perspective the rather strict separation of technological and behavioral solution is not only artificial but also detrimental to finding real sustainable solutions. Persuasive technology aims to intervene in these user-system interactions by using intelligent agents to change human attitudes and behavior. Embodied agents like robots and avatars go beyond the function of a simple tool by adopting social behavior that allows for social influence on human users. In addition intelligent systems can provide experiences that are impossible in the physical reality and which may enable experiences that promote more adequate reactions to future and distant climate risks.
