MONDAY Forum

Conversational Avatars

Presented by the

SSH Virtual Simulation Section

Join us for this FREE SSH SimSeries Open Forum Discussion!

OverviewConversational Avatars represent computer-run artificial persons who interact with users (learners) by means of a visual representation on a screen and via a series of dialog algorithms or scripts.

This represents a new horizon in learning, especially regarding non-technical skills. Please join us for a look into how this applies today to simulation, what the pioneers in the field are working on and what the future might hold for your learners tomorrow!

Attend this session and learn as we discuss:

  • What is a conversational avatar?

  • The current state of the technology

  • What it means to be cutting-edge with conversational avatars
