There is related work going on at a number of other locations that you
may be interested in looking at. Here is a smattering:
and Affect Project at the University of Birmingham.
This project is headed up by Aaron Sloman and is interested in
evaluating the design space of agent architectures. In particular,
they are examining the design of agent architectures for
resource-bounded agents with multiple sources of motivation and the
role emotions plays in such agents.
- The Virtual
Theater Project at Stanford. This project is headed up by
and Edward Feigenbaum. They are looking at tools to allow children to
create impovisational plays on the computer.
- The Autonomous
Agent Group at the MIT Media Laboratory. This group is headed up by
Maes. They build all sorts of agents for a variety of purposes.
