Generic Personality and Emotion Simulation for Conversational Agents

Egges, A. and Kshirsagar, S. and Magnenat-Thalmann, N.


Abstract: This paper describes a generic model for personality, mood and emotion simulation for conversational virtual humans. We present a generic model for updating the parameters related to emotional behaviour, as well as a linear implementation of the generic update mechanisms. We explore how existing theories for appraisal can be integrated into the framework. Then we describe a prototype system that uses the described models in combination with a dialogue system and a talking head with synchronised speech and facial expressions.
