Storytelling Agents with Personality and Adaptivity [article]

Zhichao Hu, Marilyn A. Walker, Michael Neff, Jean E. Fox Tree
2017 arXiv   pre-print
A second study shows that subjects also prefer adaptive to nonadaptive virtual agents.  ...  We manipulate agent personality on the extraversion scale, whether the agents adapt to one another in their gestural performance and agent gender.  ...  Conversants dynamically adapt to their conversational partner, both in conversation and when telling stories, and using both verbal and nonverbal features [20, 21, 22, 23, 24] , inter alia.  ...

Building Expression into Virtual Characters [article]

V. Vinayagamoorthy, M. Gillies, A. Steed, E. Tanguy, X. Pan, C. Loscos, M. Slater
2006 Eurographics State of the Art Reports  
Whilst representations of virtual characters have come a long way in recent years, interactive virtual characters tend to be a bit "wooden" with respect to their perceived behaviour.  ...  In such applications the user may need to interact with a number of different characters that need to invoke specific responses in the user, so that the user interprets the scenario in the way that the  ...  In a face-to-face interaction, individuals who stare too much can cause others to feel ill at ease or uncomfortable while those who do not look at their conversational partners enough make them feel bored  ...

Towards Conversational Agents That Attend to and Adapt to Communicative User Feedback [chapter]

Hendrik Buschmeier, Stefan Kopp
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper presents work towards making conversational agents 'attentive speakers' that continuously attend to the communicative feedback given by their interlocutors and adapt their ongoing and subsequent  ...  communicative behaviour to their needs.  ...  We would like to credit Benjamin Dosch with developing the concepts and mechanisms that make the SPUD NLG microplanner adaptive to the 'attributed listener state'.  ...

Bio-Inspired Virtual Populations: Adaptive Behavior With Affective Feedback

Rui Filipe Antunes
2016 Zenodo  
Results show a populations of agents that express their individuality and autonomy with a high level of heterogeneous and spontaneous behaviors, while simultaneously adapting and overcoming their perceptual  ...  We have built on an existing agent framework from Sequeira et al. [17], and adapted it to be susceptible to temperamental and emotive states in the context of cooperative and non-cooperative interactions  ...  The objective is to be able to generate populations of agents that express their individuality and autonomy while simultaneously they adapt and overcome their perceptual limitations.  ...

Towards Adaptive Workflow Enactment Using Multiagent Systems

Paul A. Buhler, Jos� M. Vidal
2005 Journal of Special Topics in Information Technology and Management  
We propose that workflow description languages and their associated design tools can be used to specify a multiagent system.  ...  system, which can then intelligently adapt to changing environmental conditions.  ...  In comparison, views toward virtual organizations require flexible, on-the-fly alignment of business partners; in other words, adaptive workflow capabilities.  ...

Human Nature in the Adaptation of Trust

Bart Nooteboom
2006 Social Science Research Network  
As an illustration of an effort in that direction, it summarizes and discusses an agentbased model of the build-up and adaptation of trust between multiple producers and suppliers.  ...  This chapter pleads for more inspiration from human nature, in agent-based modeling.  ...  Agents adapt their trust in a partner as a function of his loyalty, exhibited by his continuation of the relationship.  ...

Multimodal plan representation for adaptable BML scheduling

2013 Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems  
Natural human interaction is characterized by interpersonal coordination: interlocutors converge in their speech rates, smoothly switch speaking turns with virtually no delay, provide their interlocutors  ...  We argue that behavior scheduling for Virtual Humans can be viewed as a constraint satisfaction problem, and show how Elckerlyc uses this view in its flexible behavior plan representation that allows one  ...  A virtual human might also have to closely coordinate their movements with those of a human partner while performing a joint physical task.  ...
