1. The aim of this research is to base the “AI” methods that control virtual characters on data of real human behaviour rather than purely a priori models. This will make it possible to capture the individuality and complexity of a real person’s behaviour. It will also make it enable actor’s to be more closely involved in the process of creating interactive characters, thus bringing a greater artistic insight into what has been, up to now a very technology driven process.
