Abstract

Human health depends to a large extent on their behavior. Adopting a healthy lifestyle often requires behavior change. This paper presents a computational model of behavior change that describes formal relations between the determinants of behavior change, based on existing psychological theories. This model is developed to function as the core of a reasoning mechanism of an intelligent support system that is able to create theory-based intervention messages. The system first tries to determine the reason of the occurrence of the unwanted behavior by asking short questions via a mobile phone application and by gathering information from an online lifestyle diary. The system then attempts to influence the user using tailored information and persuasive motivational messages.
