Humor and embodied conversational agents


Nijholt, A. (2003) Humor and embodied conversational agents. [Report]

open access
Abstract:This report surveys the role of humor in human-to-human interaction and the possible role of humor in human-computer interaction. The aim is to see whether it is useful for embodied conversational agents to integrate humor capabilities in their internal model of intelligence, emotions and interaction (verbal and nonverbal) capabilities. A current state of the art of research in embodied conversational agents, affective computing and verbal and nonverbal interaction is presented. The report adheres to the `Computers Are Social Actors¿ paradigm to assume that human conversational partners of embodied conversational agents assign human properties to these agents, including humor.
