Generating Believable Personality-Rich Story Characters Using Body Languages

Su, Wen-Poh, Pham, Binh L., & Wardhani, Aster W. (2006) Generating Believable Personality-Rich Story Characters Using Body Languages. In AMT06',The Fourth International Conference on Active Media Technology, June 7-9 2006, Brisbane.


We present an approach using story scripts and action descriptions in a form similar to the content description of storyboards to predict specific personality and emotional states. By constructing a hierarchical fuzzy rule-based system we facilitate the personality and emotion control of the body language of dynamic story characters. Our ultimate goal is to facilitate the high-level control of synthetic characters.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
