The Elbot can get a little annoying and Alice appears to be pretty simple.
Image of page 6
What kind of personality do they have? They are usually goofy or personable when they are animated or emotional. The ones that I would consider synthetic characters are kind of stiff and come across as not very personable. Elbot is easily agitated and Alice is very simple and rigid in her answers.
Image of page 7
How is this expressed? This is expressed by the agent jumping up and down spinning around raising their hands if they have them. Sometimes the eyes get really big and some even made noise. Alice says things and her eyes move while Elbot changes faces and stances to show how he feels.
Image of page 8
What kinds of behavior do they exhibit? They are excited easily and sometimes unnecessarily. The synthetic characters seemed to show little or no emotion and thus it was difficult to tell what behavior they were having. Elbot gets wild and Alice doesn't do much.
Image of page 9
What are their facial expressions like? Their eyes get big they sometimes smile or frown. Their eyebrows raise and sink.

What is their appearance like? Is it realistic or cartoon-like? Most seemed to be cartoon like but a few where realistic, in the case of Elbot he seemed to be an animated robot while Alice is a person.
Image of page 11
Where do they appear on screen? Elbot was on top but Alice was on the bottom left.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
