Branislav Bédi, project manager at The Árni Magnússon Institue for Icelandic Studies will give the talk “Learning Icelandic in Virtual Reykjavik: Simulating real-life conversations with embodied conversational agents using multimodal clarification requests”.

Abstract:
The project Icelandic Language and Culture Training in Virtual Reykjavik is a 3D computer game that enables learners of Icelandic to practise oral language and listening. The aim of the project is to build a computer game populated with embodied conversational agents (ECAs) endowed with realistic multimodal behaviour, with a long-term goal of supporting authentic teaching of Icelandic language and culture.
