Abstract

Communication is a vital factor in the collaboration between team members. Creating virtual agents that are able to communicate with humans is a challenging research area. When both the virtual agent and human user should communicate together while performing a collaborative activity, the challenge becomes more critical and difficult. In this paper we present a taxonomy of different ways to achieve human-agent communication. Relying on the concepts of Speech Act Theory, we propose a design to communication model for humanagent teamwork to be integrated into a collaborative virtual learning environment currently under development.
