### Preface

This master thesis is the final part of my Master in Interaction Design degree at the department
of Design at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). The project planning,
preliminary studies and literature review was conducted during the autumn of 2017. The work
presented in this thesis was conducted and written during the spring of 2018 and the workload
corresponds to 30 ECTS.

This project was undertaken after I was challenged with building my first chatbot, and was surprised to find that much work is still to be done regarding how we can improve the user experience
of conversational interfaces. After having tried, failed, improved, and completed the design process
of this chatbot, I was left with a lot of experiences and insights that I wished to investigate further.
And having read the recent reviews and overall reception of chatbots, I was concerned whether this
could lead to abandonment of chatbots as service. I therefore wanted to use my final year of my
masters, to try and prove at least one assumption regarding conversational agents: can personality
improve the user experience of chatbots?

I aim with this master thesis to add to the field of human-computer and human-robot interaction
by providing evidence to explain how personality impacts the user experience of conversational
interfaces, and how personality affects how humans perceive chatbots. In addition to this I also
wanted to create a framework that can be adopted by others to build their own user-centred chatbot
personalities. This framework was implemented to answer whether personality matters to the user
experience of conversational agents.

For each image in this space, a human observer should be able to tell if that image contains a face or not. We cannot enumerate such a set C(Image) or write it down explicitly, but we can easily tell if an image contains a given concept. Likewise, for a morphism in the CycleGAN schema (Figure 3.1
