Inha presented a paper at CHI 2021

Inha Cha presented her paper titled "Exploring the Use of a Voice-based Conversational Agent to Empower Adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder" at CHI 2021 Virtual Conference. This work explored how VCAs could encourage adolescents with ASD in navigating various aspects of their daily lives through the two-week use of VCAs and a series of participatory design workshops. Findings demonstrated that VCAs could be an engaging, empowering, emancipating tool that supports adolescents with ASD to address their needs, personalities, and expectations, such as promoting self-care skills, regulating negative emotions, and practicing conversational skills.
