DEIRA is a virtual agent commenting on virtual horse races in real time. DEIRA analyses the state of the race, acts on emotion and comments about the situation in a believable and engaging way, using synthesized speech and facial expressions. This paper shortly describes the features of this embodied conversational agent.
Demo given at the International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems on May 15th 2008 in Estoril, Portugal.
