David Traum, Stacy Marsella, Jonathan Gratch: “Emotion and Dialogue in the MRE Virtual Humans”

June 14, 2004 | Kloster Irsee, Germany

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

We describe the emotion and dialogue aspects of the virtual agents used in the MRE project at USC. The models of emotion and dialogue started independently, though each makes crucial use of a central task model. In this paper we describe the task model, dialogue model, and emotion model, and the interactions between them.
