Bill Swartout, Randall Hill, Jonathan Gratch, Stacy Marsella, Jacki Morie, Jeff Rickel, Marcus Thiebaux, Bill Swartout: “Toward the Holodeck: Integrating Graphics, Sound, Character and Story”

June 15, 2001 | Montreal, Quebec

Speaker: Bill Swartout, Randall Hill, Jonathan Gratch, Stacy Marsella, Jacki Morie, Jeff Rickel, Marcus Thiebaux, Bill Swartout
Host: 5th International Conference on Autonomous Agents

We describe an initial prototype of a holodeck- like environment that we have created for the Mission Rehearsal Exercise Project. The goal of the project is to create an experience learning system where the participants are immersed in an environment where they can encounter the sights, sounds, and circumstances of real-world scenarios. Virtual humans act as characters and coaches in an interactive story with pedagogical goals.
