We present a web-based design for a human agent interaction (HAI) system. In this relaxation system a virtual-human acts as a breathing coach and guides the user along with it using a series of breathing exercises. The core of the proposed design is a step ladder approach for optimising the difficulty level of the breathing exercises. We are using real-time optimisation to achieve a seamless and effective interaction between the human user and the virtual coach. For the user to have a personalised exercise, the coach adapts the exercise regime based on the user’s response. For a natural interaction experience, our virtual coach looks like a human, speaks in human voice and displays nonverbal gestures.
