|Abstract:||This demonstration aims to showcase the recently completed SEMAINE system. The SEMAINE system is a publicly available, fully autonomous Sensitive Artificial Listeners (SAL) system that consists of virtual dialog partners based on audiovisual analysis and synthesis (see http://semaine.opendfki.de/wiki). The system runs in real-time, and combines incremental analysis of user behavior, dialog management, and synthesis of speaker and listener behavior of a SAL character, displayed as a virtual agent. The SAL characters intend to engage the user in a conversation by paying attention to the user's emotions and nonverbal expressions. The characters have their own emotionally defined personality. During an interaction, the characters attempt to create an emotional workout for the user by drawing her/him towards their dominant emotion, through a combination of verbal and nonverbal expressions.|
