ACM CHI 2000 - Welbo: An embodied conversational agent living in mixed reality space

This paper introduces a new type of anthropomorphic agent that lives in a 3D space where the real and virtual worlds are seamlessly merged. In this mixed reality (MR) space, people wearing a see-through head-mounted display can interact with both physical and virtual objects in real time. In this type of MR space, an embodied conversational agent, named "Welbo," is implemented to study how agent technology contributes. This agent has several unique features, compared with the conventional desktop agent.
