Context and the Virtual Human
Artificial agents that simulate aspects of human behavior are expected to behave much like a real human in a similar situation would. Human behavior however, is largely context-dependent. Ignoring the effect context can have on an agent’s behavior can hinder the quality and plausibility of agent’s behavior. In this paper, we present a context-driven approach to modeling plausible aspects of human behavior which focuses on endowing an agent with the ability to recognize and deal effectively with anticipated contextual changes.
