Virtual Eve

Researchers from Massey University have created a virtual teacher called Eve, that can ask questions, give feedback, discuss solutions, and express emotions. To develop the software for this system the Massey team observed children and their interactions with teachers and captured them on thousands of images. From these images of facial expression, gestures and body movements they developed programs that would capture and recognise facial expression, body movement, and significant bio-signals such as heart rate and skin resistance.
