Activity: Talk or presentation › Oral presentation
In this talk we survey our research on interacting with (embodied) agents in WWW accessible virtual environments. The emphasis is on interactions with agents that help the user to navigate in the information environment, Several approaches are followed: (1) the use of commercially available speech recognition software to give navigation commands in a WWW accessible virtual environment, (2) the use of a (primitive) natural language dialogue system to allow the user to get the information about the environment he or she wants, (3) the introduction of an agent architecture in which several agents are employed to advise the user according to his or her preferences, (4) the use of agents that have been equipped with instruction models, and (5) the use of agents that employ gaze behavior modelling for dialogue turntaking. The talk will be illustrated with several video demonstrations of implemented results.
