Artificial Companions as a new kind of interface to the future Internet

11 Oct 2007
Description

This research report seeks to connect the future of the Internet to a new, even though relatively developed, technology; that of computer speech and language and its embodiment in a concept the author calls an Artificial Companion. He argues here that such entities are coming into being and that they will change fairly rapidly from the rather primitive entities now available, largely in Japan, to being entities that will lead to profound social and psychological consequences; they will also constitute a new and much more personal way of dealing with information and its so-called overload' upon all of us.
