Embodied Conversational Agents (ECAs) are computer generated lifelike characters that interact with human users in face-to-face conversations. To achieve natural multi-modal conversations, ECA systems are sophisticated and require numbers of building assemblies. They are thus difficult for an individual research group to develop. To address this problem, we… (More)
SUMMARY We describe attempts to have robots behave as embodied knowledge media that will permit knowledge to be communicated through embodied interactions in the real world. The key issue here is to give robots the ability to associate interactions with information content while interacting with a communication partner. Toward this end, we present two… (More)

—The advancement of traffic makes world more and more internationalized and increases frequency of communication between people who come from different cultures. Differences in their conversation go beyond the languages they speak to the non-verbal behaviors they express while talking. To improve the abilities of the embodied conversational agents (ECAs)… (More)
—The advancement of traffic and computer networks makes the world more and more internationalized and increases the frequency of communications between people using different languages and expressing different nonverbal behaviors. To improve communication of embodied conversational agent (ECA) systems with their human users, the importance of their… (More)
The data on an isolated upper tooth (P4) of Deinotherium sp. from the Late Miocene beds of the Maikop 1 locality (Maikop, Republic of Adygea) are reported. This is the first record of Deinotherium from the Upper Miocene of Russia. The tooth crown of P4 is similar in size to D. proavum Eichwald, 1831 (= D. gigantissimum Stefanescu, 1892).
32 Welllpreserved remains of woolly mammoths Mammuthus primigenius (Blumenbach, 1799) have been found relatively rarely in the permafrost of north ern West Siberia. A number of important finds of young and adult specimens of mammoth from this region have been comprehensively studied . Recent studies of woolly mammoth remains have allowed recc ognition of… (More)
148 The Shestakovo locality (Shestakovo, Chebula region, Kemerovo oblast, Fig. 1) is known for rich occurrences of Early Cretaceous continental fauna [1–3]. A fragment of a skeleton of the Psittacosaurus was first found in 1953 . Since 1995, the locality has been studied by specialists of several research organii zations, including the Borissiak… (More)
The data on a presumable lumbar vertebra of a fossil seal from the Maikopian beds of Kalmykia are provided. The specimen is confined to a suffocation taphocoenosis.
