The terms agent, intelligent agent and 3D agent are becoming more and more frequently used in literature. A key issue in the web community is that a web site must be equipped with a virtual agent able to support users in a natural way. Following this trend, we decided to implement scenographic agents mimic intelligent reasoning (SAMIR), a prototype of a(More)
We are developing a new wearable electronic badge that will enable people working in large organizations to communicate , find information, and interact in more efficient and intelligent ways. The badge will perform speech analysis and speech recognition using a microphone and state-of-the-art micro-power electronics. It will be capable of playing audio(More)
In this paper we discuss how metaphors for supporting user interaction with multimedia databases can be automatically generated. The work presented is a further step in the development of Virgilio, a Virtual Reality (VR) based system that has been designed to be a general purpose exploration tool for highly structured data. Virgilio visualizes the results(More)
We present a design environment which allows the generation, modification, and visual speech animation of 3D cartoon-like faces – Tinky. Our underlying face model is not based on a set of independent parameters that control specific abstract muscle emulations but is directed by a set of objects representing the elements of the face. In order to provide an(More)
This demonstration presents a prototype system in which metaphors for supporting user interaction with multimedia databases are automatically generated. Such a prototype is a further step in the development of Virgilio, a Virtual Reality (VR) based system that has been designed to be a general purpose exploration tool for highly structured data.

Due to the effects of the Internet on global economy, organizers nowadays work, compete, and cooperate on a worldwide scale. They must be able to cope with the fast pace of worldwide competition by optimizing to-to-market and, especially, by being highly innovative in the products and the services they offer. Because of the dynamic nature of work processes,(More)
