Abstract:

We present the first version of our Virtual Neighbor, who can talk with users about people employed in the same institution. The Virtual Neighbor can discuss information about employees in a medium sized company or institute with users. The system acquires information from three sources a personnel directory database, public web pages, and through dialogue interaction. Users can interact through face to face spoken dialogue, using components from the ICT Virtual human toolkit, or via a chat interface.
