What is a Virtual Character?
  • Virtual character - a character who represents
    the state of a system
  • In TRON (1982), humans and humans that represents
    software interacted within a world that
    represented the hardware.

Virtual Character Research
  • Mostly
  • Rendering
  • Animation
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Newer approaches
  • Affective power
  • Human response to VCs
  • Clinical Psychology
  • Fear of public speaking

5
Motivation
  • Current methodologies
  • Books
  • Standardized Patients (actors)
  • Restricted in
  • Training frequency
  • Scenario variety
  • Immediate feedback
  • Affects medical student preparedness

6
Solution
  • Interactive Virtual Characters
  • Life-Sized
  • Computer Generated
  • Natural Interaction
  • Responds to User
  • Responses based on accepted medical procedure
  • COTS Equipment
  • Projectors
  • Laptops
  • Web cameras
  • Tablet PC

7
Why Do We Want Virtual Characters?
  • Propose Digital Characters as a new (meta-)
    medium to interact with information
  • Effective Interaction
  • Better than keyboard and mouse for certain tasks
  • Dynamic
  • 3D
  • Natural interaction
  • Low Bandwidth
  • Effective Collaboration
  • Controlled conveyed visual information
  • Non-verbal communication (60)

8
Combines
  • Speech
  • Computer Vision
  • Eye Gaze
  • Gesture Recognition
  • Repeat your gestures
  • High Quality 3D models
  • Animation
  • Rendering
  • Visualization

9
Integrates
  • Computer Science
  • Computer Graphics
  • Image Processing
  • Natural Language Processing
  • Medicine
  • Training
  • Education
  • Standardization
  • Education
  • Multimedia Learning
  • Technology based Learning
  • Training
  • What other areas could this be used for?
