Agentscape Partner in the EUROCITIZEN Project
 
The EUROCITIZEN project will develop a new, massively multi-user on-line game of knowledge, to promote, European intercultural education, cross-national cooperation, and enhance European awareness among citizens of Europe.

The game model is based on a "knowledge quiz" paradigm and will target multilingual/multicultural audiences. It will be developed in four languages (English, German, Spanish and Greek) and will involve state-of-the-art ICT technologies:
 
  • intelligent 3D AVATAR Agents with natural language understanding capability
  • intelligent, dynamic user profiling
  • interactive multimedia
  • advanced networking
The game will be developed by a consortium of six Euro-pean private companies and universities:
  • MLS Firmware SA, Thessaloniki, Greece (Coordinator)
  • Agentscape AG, Berlin, Germany
  • University of Barcelona, Technoetica Institute, Barcelona, Spain
  • University of Liverpool, International Centre for Digital Content, Liverpool, United Kingdom
  • Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Dept. of Informatics, Thessaloniki, Greece Total Language Solutions, Plc, Devon, United Kingdom
The project is partly funded from the ‘eCONTENT’ FP5 Eu-ropean Programme under contract No. 22089 and partly from the commercial partners' resources. The project dura-tion is 30 months (end date Jan. 2005).
 
Agentscape’s role in the project is the development of a social-intelligent agent capable of natural language communications with the human users. The virtual agent is equipped with a knowledge pool of domain-specific solu-tions and can provide each individual EUROCITIZEN-participant with personalised and contextualised multimedia information. The agent can inform and assist the users also in proactive manner about the various socio-cultural aspects of the European countries and in the same time offer enjoyable entertainment. Agentscape AG develops the EUROCITIZEN - Infrastructure based on its proprietary basic technology CyMON and Cyb and uses for the EUROCITIZEN-Applications its extensive experience gained via customer - portals like www.flirtmaschine.de and www.puc-online.de. Agentscape entwickelt im Rahmen des Projekts einen sozial-intelligenten -Agenten, der in der Lage ist, natürlichsprachliche Ein- und Ausgaben zu verarbeiten. Darüber hinaus ist der virtuelle Agent mit einem wohl durchdachten Wissenspool aus bestimmten Domänen ausgestattet, und kann, individualisiert und kontextbezogen, multimediale Informationen an jeden einzelnen EUROCITIZEN-Teilnehmer bereitstellen. Er kann pro-aktiv agieren, beraten, über die jeweiligen soziokulturellen Aspekte der Europäischen Länder unterrichten und zugleich unterhalten. Die Agentscape AG entwickelt die EUROCITIZEN Agenten-Infrastruktur basierend auf ihrer eigenen Basistechnologie CyMON und Cyb , und verwendet bei dem Aufbau der EUROCITIZEN-Applikationen die umfangreichen Erfahrungen, die sie in Kunden-Portalen wie www.flirtmachine.de und www.puc-online.de, gewonnen hat.
