A SCHIZOPHRENIC APPROACH FOR INTELLIGENT CONVERSATIONAL AGENTS

Jean-Claude Heudin

Abstract

We present a novel approach for creating intelligent conversational agents based on a “schizophrenic” model implemented using the EVA (Evolutionary Virtual Agent) nano-agent architecture. The Ms House experiment developed using this approach is compared with Eliza and the Alice chatterbot.
