We have constructed TATIN-PIC, a collaborative work environment consisting of an interactive tabletop and an interactive board, in order to explore phases beyond brain-storming in preliminary design. In this article, we present the TATIN-PIC platform, as well as our evaluation methodology which focuses on crucial face-to-face communication around the(More)
Natural Language Generation for personality rich characters represents one of the important directions for believable agents research. The typical approach to interactive NLG is to hand-author textual responses to different situations. In this paper we address NLG for interactive games. Specifically, we present a novel template-based system that provides(More)
The recently launched TATIN-PIC Project at the University of Technology of Compiègne is a multi-modal collaborative work environment for teams performing preliminary design. In this paper, we present the design and reasoning for the plans of our groupware system. Effective preliminary design teamwork requires alternating stages of discussion,(More)
In recent years, there has been an increased interest for research on computer-supported cooperative work performed in collaborative interactive spaces. The TATIN-PIC project envisions a true multi-surface collaborative work environment with an interactive tabletop, an interactive board display, tablet PCs, and smartphones. In this paper, we first present(More)
Understanding stakeholder perceptions and the impact of campaigns are key insights for communication experts and policy makers. A structured analysis of Web content can help answer these questions, particularly if this analysis involves the ability to extract, disambiguate and visualize contextual information.
