Digital Confession Box at Lowlands festival
Why should we share our feelings or secrets with a chatbot? And would we perhaps share more intimate secrets with a chatbot than we would with a human interlocutor? This is investigated by Emmelyn Croes, Marjolijn Antheunis, Chris van der Lee, and Jan de Wit, from the Department of Communication and Cognition (TSHD) at Tilburg University. The way they are going to go about this is by conducting an experiment at Lowlands called ‘digital confession box’, scheduled from August 16 through August 18.
