The project aims to design and evaluate the use of intelligent avatars for human-machine communication. The avatars will provide their human co-worker with information on the progress of the working processes; they will alert him when criticalities occur; they will ask for the help of the human co-worker when their abilities will not allow him to do a task or make a decision. The avatar will communicate with human collaborators through natural language by implementing typical strategies of human communication, with particular attention to emotional and motivational aspects.
