A realistic, multimodal virtual agent for the healthcare domain


Linders, Guido M; Vaitonyté, Julija; Alimardani, Maryam; Mitev, Kiril O; Louwerse, Max M (2022). A realistic, multimodal virtual agent for the healthcare domain.

Abstract

We introduce an interactive embodied conversational agent for deployment in the healthcare sector. The agent is operated by a software architecture that integrates speech recognition, dialog management, and speech synthesis, and is embodied by a virtual human face developed using photogrammetry techniques. These features together allow for real-time, face-to-face interactions with human users. Although the developed software architecture is domain-independent and highly customizable, the virtual agent will initially be applied to healtcare domain. Here we give an overview of the different components of the architecture.
