Abstract [en]

This paper presents work in progress on implementing an embodied question answering system, Dr. Cecilia, in the form of a virtual caregiver, for use in the treatment of eating disorders. The rationale for the system is grounded in one of the few effective treatments for anorexia and bulimia nervosa. The questions and answers database is encoded using natural language, and is easily updatable by human caregivers without any technical expertise. Matching of users' questions with database entries is performed using a weighted and normalized n-gram similarity function. In this paper we give a comprehensive background to and an overview of the system, with a focus on aspects pertaining to natural language processing and user interaction. The system is currently only implemented for Swedish.
