On the Horizon: Virtual Eve

The near-human performance of a virtual teacher called Eve created by Massey researchers has drawn the attention of scientists across the computing world. Eve is what is known in the information sciences as an intelligent or affective tutoring system that can adapt its response to the emotional state of people by interaction through a computer system. The system “Easy with Eve” is thought to be the first of its type. It may be a glimpse of the future with avatar-teachers interacting with students. Ever-patient; never-tired; always-responsive; 24x7.
