Enhancing System Communication through Synthetic Characters

By Elena Not, Koray Balci, Fabio Pianesi, Massimo Zancanaro and Bruno Kessler Foundation (fbk-irst


Synthetic characters are an effective modality to convey messages to the user, provide visual feedback about the system internal understanding of the communication, and engage the user in the dialogue through emotional involvement. We propose SMIL-AGENT as a representation and scripting language for synthetic characters, which abstracts away from the specific implementation and context of use of the character. SMIL-AGENT has been defined starting from SMIL 0.1 standard specification and aims at providing a high-level standardized language for presentations by different synthetic agents within diverse communication and application contexts.
