The Council of Coaches project will innovate on a number of key technologies. Please find some of the feature highlights below…
|Virtual Coaching System
The main objective of the project is to develop a virtual coaching system that can assist older adult users in the areas of physical, cognitive, mental and social well-being. Diabetes and Chronic Pain are two use cases that will gain our specific attention.
|Sensing and Profiling
Our system must learn to understand the user, his behavior and his context in order to provide personalized coaching. Through sensing and profiling the system builds up a knowledge base that the virtual coaches use to drive their coaching actions.
Dynamic, automated conversations between a virtual coach and a human user. As if that isn’t complicated enough, Council of Coaches takes dialogue management to the next level by introducing a multi-party automatic dialogue system in which multiple virtual characters can interact with a human user.
Experience a radically new concept of human-computer interaction. Step into the virtual council meeting room, and join a special session with a team of expert coaches. On today’s agenda: you. The project will focus on bringing alive a memorable cast of characters and pushing the boundaries of intuitive user interaction and user experience.
