    Human conversations are highly dynamic, responsive interactions. To enter into flexible interactions with humans, a conversational agent must be capable of fluent incremental behavior generation. New utterance content must be integrated seamlessly with ongoing behavior, requiring dynamic application of co-articulation. The timing and shape of the agent’s behavior must be adapted on-the-fly to the interlocutor, resulting in natural interpersonal coordination. We present AsapRealizer, a BML 1.0 behavior realizer that achieves these capabilities by building upon, and extending, two state of the art existing realizers, as the result of a collaboration between two research groups.
