Summary: The general aim of the project is to explore how children perceive animated agents and electronic devices, how they relate to them, and to understand the underlying mechanisms that influence these interactions. Practically, the gained insight will help to improve children’s interactions with these agents and devices, and will beware possible harmful consequences.
