Abstract

In this paper, two systems will be described. First, we present an architecture for emotion-based agents, called SCREAM, that allows to encode affect-related processes for an animate character. Content authors may design the mental make-up of the agent by declaring a variety of parameters relevant to affective communication and obtain quantified emotional reactions. Second, we report on MPML, an XML-style markup language that facilitates the control and coordination of animated characters in web-based environments. Both systems are integrated such that the ‘bodies’ and ‘minds’ of life-like characters can be easily controlled.
