Research study: Using AI-based chatbot to complete tasks

CAIRO Lab is looking for participants for a study on using an AI-based chatbot to complete tasks. You must be a CU Boulder student who is over 18 years old, and you will receive $15 for participating in a 45- to 60-minute-long study.

  • Title of research: AI Chatbot User Study
  • Institution conducting research: CU Boulder Collaborative AI and Robotics Lab
  • Eligibility: CU Boulder students over 18 years old

The purpose of this research is to improve the implementation and use of chatbots that are based on artificial intelligence.
