Abstract:This report describes a case-based approach to the generation of the behaviour of conversational agents in virtual environments. A framework called behavioural case-based reasoning is defined to enable the application of case-based techniques in behaviour generation. Based on this framework, a model is designed for case-based generation of textual natural language behaviour. The flexibility of the model allows application in other domains as well. A case-based agent environment (CABAGE) has been developed to enable natural language communication with prototype CBR agents. An agent can be initialised from example dialogues, example concepts and known facts. Philosophical issues are also addressed.
