Facilitating Agents for Multi-Cultural Exchange
The vision of the FAME project was to construct and intelligent agent to facilitate communication among people from different cultures who collaborate on solving a common problem. The FAME agent serves as an information butler by supporting multimodal interaction in a transparent way. He does not intervene in the conversation, but remains in the background to provide appropriate support.
FAME provided three services:
Facilitate human to human communication through multimodal interaction including vision, speech and object manipulation
Provide the appropriate information relevant to the context
Make possible the production and manipulation of information blending both electronic and physical representations.
Seven partners from four countries in Europe collaborate in the FAME consortium:
- INP Grenoble
- UPC (Universitat Politècnica de catalunya)
- Université Joseph Fourier
- Universität Karlsruhe (TH)
