FAIR customer company gets a detailed report on the test performed and the results in a session where the experts explain the contents of the report to the company: What works and what are the challenges, as well as recommendations on how the AI application may be improved. A typical duration of the service is three months.

Human-AI interaction testing

FAIR opens the doors to the Interaction Laboratory, an innovative research environment that uses emotional intelligence and psychophysiological measurement to explore different interaction situations and their emotional reactions.

Human-AI interaction testing is done by using the iMotions software. This service offers the possibility to gain detailed information on the strengths and weaknesses of the AI application. Information may be gathered from sources such as: facial expressions, speech, GSR (galvanic skin response) and gaze recognition.

Additionally, several alternative user interfaces of the AI enabled service may be tested. The company gets a customized report on the usability of the AI-enhanced digital service, and a presentation of the report including a Q&A session with the specialists.
