CAROUSEL+

Project description

Real-life interactions in the digital world

Imagine a digital character taking on the real-world role of a physical therapist, teacher or guide. This may one day become reality. With this in mind, the EU-funded CAROUSEL project is developing technology that will pave the way for social-physical behaviour of digital characters by better understanding human body language and having the capability to interact autonomously with a group of people. It will examine, simulate, develop, test and validate human–digital interaction scenarios. The potential for this “Real-World Social and Physical AI” is vast since it can be applied to many applications in many areas, for physically interacting in a meaningful social way.
