Intelligent virtual humans with autonomy and personality: State of the Art

Kasap, Z. and Magnenat-Thalmann, N.

Abstract: Intelligent virtual characters has been subject to exponential growth in the last decades and they are utilized in many application areas such as education, training, human-computer interfaces and entertainment. In this paper, we present a state-ofthe-art of virtual human mentioning about the use of intelligent decision technologies in order to build virtual human architectures. We consider various aspects such as autonomy, interaction and personification. Each of these aspects comes to prominence in different applications. This survey provides a novel insight to the current state of designing and modeling virtual humans using different decision technologies and can be used as a basis for several future directions.
