As humans we perceive other humans as individually different based – amongst other things – on a consistent pattern of affect, cognition, and behavior. Here we propose a biologically and psychologically grounded cognitive architecture for the control of nonverbal behavior of a virtual humanoid character during dynamic interactions with human users. Key(More)
In this demonstration a human user interacts with a virtual humanoid character in real-time. Our goal is to create a character that is perceived as imbued with a distinct personality while responding dynamically to inputs from the environment [4] [1]. A hybrid model that comprises continuous and discrete components, firstly, drives the logical behavior of(More)
The advent and development of the Internet has changed students’ pattern of information seeking behaviors. That is also the case in Iran. The current research was carried out by interviewing with and observing of 20 intermediate girl students to assess their information seeking behavior on the web environment through a qualitative approach.

Building virtual humans is a task of formidable complexity. We believe that, especially when building agents that interact with biological humans in real-time over multiple sensorial channels, graphical, data flow oriented programming environments are the development tool of choice. In this paper, we describe a toolbox for the system control and block(More)
Human culture is uniquely cumulative and open-ended. Using a computational model of cultural evolution in which neural network based agents evolve ideas for actions through invention and imitation, we tested the hypothesis that this is due to the capacity for recursive recall. We compared runs in which agents were limited to single-step actions to runs in(More)
INTRODUCTION Male pattern hair loss is widespread around the world. Its prevalence indicates the importance of finding the best treatment modalities. This study evaluates the efficacy and safety of minoxidil 5% topical foam in male pattern hair loss treatment and patient satisfaction. METHODS This study was a before-and-after trial on 17 male patients(More)
