GAIPS SEMINAR - Prof. Deborah Richards on Virtual Worlds and Intelligent Virtual Agents that adapt to their User for Education, Training, Health and Wellbeing

We had the recent pleasure of hosting Professor Deborah Richards from the Department of Computing at Macquarie University. For the past decade, her focus has been on intelligent systems, agent technologies and virtual worlds to support human learning and well-being. Her research concerns IVAs and emotions, memory and collaborative learning for applications such as debriefing and reminiscing, border security officer training, scientific inquiry and science education, real estate assistance, museum guidance, behaviour/attitude change, empowerment and adherence to treatment advice. We are now working together on possible extensions to the FAtiMA architecture that involve the agent's deep understanding of the user and their needs.
