Abstract

This short paper contains a preliminary description of a novel type of chat system that aims at realizing natural and social communication between distant communication partners. The system is based on an Emotion Estimation module that assesses the affective content of textual messages. Avatars associated with chat partners act out the assessed emotions of messages through multiple modalities, including synthetic speech and affect-related gestures.
