Arno Hartholt, Stacy Marsella, Jonathan Gratch, David Traum, Tijmen Muller: “Do You Want To Talk About It? A First Step Towards Emotion Integrated Dialogue”

June 14, 2004 | Kloster Irsee, Germany

Speaker: Arno Hartholt, Stacy Marsella, Jonathan Gratch, David Traum, Tijmen Muller
Host: Workshop on Affective Dialogue Systems (ADS 2004)

In this paper, we describe an implemented system for emotion-referring dialogue. An agent can engage in emotion-referring dialogue if it first has a model of its own emotions, and secondly has a way of talking about them. We create this facility in the MRE Project’s virtual humans, building upon the existing emotion and dialogue facilities of these agents.
