Abstract:We survey the role of humor in particular domains of human-to-human interaction with the aim of seeing whether it is useful for embodied conversational agents to integrate humor capabilities in their models of intelligence, emotions and interaction (verbal and nonverbal) Therefore we first look at the current state of the art of research in embodied conversational agents, affective computing and verbal and nonverbal interaction. We adhere 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 appreciation.
