User-Persona Generator



Any product or software that comes out of a user-centred approach has to be evaluated with users. But often, finding an apropritate user base is a tedious task. Instead of going to individual users, we intend to create an engine that generates user personas upon specifying the requirements. For example, someone who needs to test a system can specify their requirements such as the domain of user, expertise, profession etc, and use the generated profiles to test/evaluate any tool such as a recommender system or an assistance engine to support a user base.


  1. Create a tool to generate user profiles abiding to the specified requirements
  2. Develop a GUI to provide the requirements
  3. Intended use - Evaluation of a platform/tool/system
