Directing Improvisational Actors

Barbara Hayes-Roth

I will talk about agents that function as improvisational actors who spontaneously and cooperatively enact stories at performance time. Like human improvisors, our agents are intended to exploit known heuristics for producing engaging performances and to adapt to one another’s behavior. In addition, they adapt their improvisations to directions from exogenous sources, such as people or other computer system components. We call this general paradigm "directed improvisation."
