Psychological Aspects in lifelike synthetic agents: Towards to the Personality Markup Language (A Brief Survey)

Maria Augusta Silveira Netto Nunes


This paper describes how human psychological aspects have been used in lifelike synthetic agents in order to provide believability during the human-computer interaction. We describe a brief survey of applications where Affective Computing Scientists have applied psychological aspects, like Emotion and Personality. Based on those aspects we describe the effort done by Affective Computing scientists in order to create a Markup Language to express and standardize Emotions. Because they have not yet concentrated their effort on Personality, here, we propose a starting point to create a Markup Language to express Personality.


Lifelike Synthetic Agents, Emotions, Personality.
