Abstract

The demo will show two highly expressive virtual agents introducing the audience to a traditional Japanese room. The agent models and gestures have been created by a professional Japanese character designer. By adapting and extending an influential technique ("Verbs and Adverbs"), we added parameterized emotional expression and gesture interruptibility as new behaviors to increase agent believability, interactivity, and responsiveness. In the demo, users will be provided a simple interface to test the new features.
