Embodied conversational agents - let's specify and evaluate them!http://www.vhml.org/workshops/AAMAS
16 July, 2002
in conjunction with
The First International Joint Conference on
Autonomous Agents & Multi-Agent Systems
Agreeing on standard formats is important for sharing work, but another crucial component is evaluation, that is we need to understand how well the goals of a system are being achieved, both in terms of the architecture and in terms of the application.
The workshop will address issues such as the description, semantics and extensibility of representation formats and languages in a system, as well as the requirements for representation formats and a specification / mark-up language.
It will also address the criteria and methodologies to evaluate different aspects (engagement, entertainment, efficiency in learning and usage) of embodied agents as well as the definition of 'benchmarks' to compare and evaluate them.
