Sensitive Artificial Listener (SAL) is a multimodal dialogue system which allows users to interact with virtual agents. Four characters with different emotional traits engage users is emotionally coloured interactions. They not only encourage the users into talking but also try to drag them towards specific emotional states. Despite the agents very limited verbal understanding, they are able to react appropriately to the user’s non-verbal behaviour. The demonstrator shows an final version of the fully autonomous SAL system.
