Does a pedagogical agent's gesture frequency assist advanced foreign language users with learning declarative knowledge?

Robert O. Davis, Joseph Vincent, Lili Wan
2021 International Journal of Educational Technology in Higher Education  
Therefore, this research examines how all gesture types and different frequencies influence agent persona and learning outcomes when foreign language users learn declarative knowledge.  ...  One powerful social cue has been agent gesturing.  ...  Furthermore, research question 1 of the prior knowledge assessment had a positive effect on human-likeness (b = 0.312, p < 0.01).  ...

Social robots and virtual agents as lecturers for video instruction

Jamy Li, René Kizilcec, Jeremy Bailenson, Wendy Ju
2016 Computers in Human Behavior  
Substituting a robot or a digital agent for the video of the instructor could radically decrease production time and cost; thus, the influence of a digital agent or robot on the learner should be evaluated  ...  This effect on knowledge recall was moderated by gender. Attitudes were more positive toward human lecturers than toward robots.  ...  The authors thank Professor Scott Klemmer for use of the video from his online course entitled ''Human-Computer Interaction.'' Presentation skills Rate the instructor's presentation skills.  ...

Age-Related Differences in the Evaluation of a Virtual Health Agent's Appearance and Embodiment in a Health-Related Interaction: Experimental Lab Study

Carolin Straßmann, Nicole C Krämer, Hendrik Buschmeier, Stefan Kopp
2020 Journal of Medical Internet Research  
Objective Prior research has already determined the importance of an agent's appearance in a human-agent interaction.  ...  After the interaction, participants reported on the evaluation of the agent, usage intention, perceived presence of the agent, bonding toward the agent, and overall evaluation of the interaction.  ...  To date, to the authors' knowledge, no research has investigated the effect of appearance on the preferences of different age groups in an actual human-agent interaction.  ...

Embodied Gesture Processing: Motor-Based Integration of Perception and Action in Social Artificial Agents

Amir Sadeghipour, Stefan Kopp
2010 Cognitive Computation  
Results from human-agent interactions are reported demonstrating the model's performance in learning, observation, imitation, and generation of gestures.  ...  In the attempt to endow artificial embodied agents with similar abilities, we present a probabilistic model for the integration of perception and generation of hand-arm gestures via a hierarchy of shared  ...  Open Access This article is distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution Noncommercial License which permits any noncommercial use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided  ...

The Effect of Embodiment and Competence on Trust and Cooperation in Human–Agent Interaction [chapter]

Philipp Kulms, Stefan Kopp
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Success in extended human-agent interaction depends on the ability of the agent to cooperate over repeated tasks.  ...  Yet, it is not clear how cooperation and trust change over the course of such interactions, and how this is interlinked with the developing perception of competence of the agent or its social appearance  ...  In this paper we present work that investigates the potential of IVAs to support trust and how it develops in, and influence an ongoing human-agent cooperation.  ...
