An embodied conversational agent with asperger syndrome
We discuss the development of an embodied conversational agent with Asperger-like communication skills. The agent was developed for use in educational software in a virtual environment specifically aimed at autism spectrum disorder software. We describe the design and implementation of the agent, and pay particular attention to the interaction between emotion, personality and social context. A 3D demonstration shows the typical output to conform to Asperger-like answers, with corresponding emotional responses.
