VIBE (Virtual Humans in the Brabant Economy)

Project: Research

Description

Can computers talk like humans? Look like humans? Behave like humans? Project Virtual Humans in the Brabant Economy (VIBE) focuses on developing and testing virtual humans to make this happen.

The virtual humans developed by VIBE will be able to communicate with normal people in a natural way, both verbal and non-verbal, and deliver a valuable contribution to the training of healthcare professionals. The agents developed by VIBE can be used in any training simulation in various instances, including virtual, mixed and augmented reality.

VIBE agents are designed to also allow customization for other domains to enhance training and education programs even beyond the healthcare domain.
