Item description for Creating Personalities for Synthetic Actors: Towards Autonomous Personality Agents (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) by Robert Trappl...
Progress in computer animation has gained such a speed that, before long, computer-generated human faces and figures on screen will be indistinguishable from those of real humans. The potential both for scripted films and real-time interaction with users is enormous. However, in order to cope with this potential, these faces and figures must be guided by autonomous personality agents. This carefully arranged volume presents the state of the art in research and development in making synthetic actors more autonomous. The papers describe the different approaches and solutions developed by computer animation specialists, computer scientists, experts in AI, psychologists and philosophers, from leading laboratories world-wide. Finally, a bibliography comprising more than 200 entries enable further study.

An Ok Collection Dec 30, 2000
Welcome to the 21st Century! We are in great luck to have achieved a massivy parallel power to enable us to create "real" figures to synthetic actors. Now all that is needed is to create personalities. Also there is a potential ability of extracting the personality of an actor. This would have a tremendous impact into all fields: 1)The actors can improve themselves by seeing themselves acting. 2)Virtual entities can be constructed to ineract with a "human" actor. The human actor will be ported into a world where these charcters exist. 2)The stunt (wo)men could instruct the computer into doing very dangerous stunts where it would be impossible to do otherwise. 3)Psychological there would be no more obsessions with actors that sell a lot with an image of a "hard to get" style. So people who are in some sense "innocent" would create the virtual actor of their dream and leave the real person alone to do some acting instead of social relationships that can be dangerous. With a guidance of a human psychologer these situations can be left into oblivion. An interactive studio that the patient can understand his obsession and get over it. 4)These belong into the next millenium of 21st century a plain reader can not understand the rest yet....
All these will be feasible into the next 25 years! Get ready...
