Abstract [en]

This degree project will explore the Wizar-of-Oz approach to perform empirical studies. The scope of the project includes areas of application, strengths, weaknesses and ethical considerations. The psychological aspect will also be covered and many examples of past experiments will be discussed. In spite of the ethical arguments and limitations agains the methodology, the conclusion is that it is a good technique that should be considered as a choice of methodology as long as the requirements of the methodology are met, the experiment must for example involve a task that a human is able to simulate in a reasonable manner.

Abstract [sv]

Examensarbetets syfte är att utforska Wizard-of-Oz metodologin som ett alternativ att utföra empiriska studier. Arbetets omfattning inkluderar tillämpningsområden, fördelar, nackdelar och etiska synpunkter. Dessutom tas den psykologiska aspekten i beräkning och många exempel av tidigare studier inom området diskuteras. Trots de etiska argumenten samt begränsningar inom metodologin är slutsatsen att det är en bra teknik som borde övervägas som ett alternativ under förutsättning att metodologins krav är uppfyllda. Experimentet måste till exempel involvera en uppgift som en människa kan simulera på ett trovärdigt sätt.
