A framework for creating empathic characters that allows AI and graphics components to be combined in a modular and open fashion

The framework represents a principled way of bringing together AI and graphical components. It applies a multi-agent architecture with a clean interface between components, organised around a symbolic world model. It allows reuse of characters between visualisation systems and supports domain-specific ontologies.

It has currently been implemented in two versions, one completely in java and the other with a C sharp bridge using .net. It is being reissued in other projects and allows new systems to be developed in much less time since the same components do not have to be completely reinvented each tome but can be reused.
