Cooperating with Personality-Rich Interface Agents

Sebastiano Pizzutilo, Berardina De Carolis and Fiorella de Rosis

Animated Agents are endowed with personality (and emotions), with the aim of increasing their believability and of establishing an empathic relationship with the User: the Five Factor Model is the reference schema most frequently employed to this aim. In this paper, we claim that, to endow Agents with ’social intelligence', these 'communication' traits should be integrated with 'cooperation' attitudes; we describe our experience in building an Agent that combines the two personality aspects and discuss the problems still open.
