January 13, 2009: Electronic Visualization Laboratory demonstrated Project LifeLike at National Science Foundation's annual Industry & University Cooperative Research (I/UCRC) meeting in Arlington, Virginia


The Electronic Visualization Laboratory demonstrated Project LifeLike at National Science Foundation's annual Industry & University Cooperative Research (I/UCRC) meeting in Arlington, Virginia. A realistic avatar representation of NSF Program Manager Alexander Schwarzkopf, the founder of I/UCRC, was created for the demonstration. Meeting attendees were able to communicate with the Virtual Alex verbally and receive information about the I/UCRC program spoken back by the avatar. The long term goal of Project LifeLike is to develop intelligent responsive avatars as future interfaces to computers, as well as technologies for creating digital archives of humans that captures both their lifelike expressions and their knowledge. Project LifeLike is supported by a 3-year grant from NSF and is being conducted in collaboration with the University of Central Florid (www.projectlifelike.org).
