On the Nature of Engineering Social Artificial Companions

Dirk Heylen, Rieks op den Akker, Mark ter Maat, Paolo Petta, Stefan Rank, Dennis Reidsma, Job Zwiers

The literature on social agents has put forward a number of requirements that social agents need to fulfill. In this paper we analyze the kinds of reasons and motivations that lie behind the statement of these requirements. In a second part of the paper, we look at how one can go about engineering the social agents. We introduce a general language in which to express dialogue rules and some tools that support the development of dialogue systems.
