Abstract: The Emergent Leader Immersive Training Environment (ELITE) is a training tool developed for the US ARMY that uses an interactive virtual human to teach young Officers interpersonal and counseling skills. The ELITE system is the culmination of several key areas of research, including natural language understanding, dialog management and a specialized animation system called SmartBody. The Animation Sequencer Tool (AST) is a middleware tool designed to act as an integration point for controlling the Virtual Human’s responses with various non-verbal behaviors and animations.
