The ICT2013 event (#ICT2013eu) was organized by the European Commission and took place on November 6-8 at Vilnius, Lithuania. ICT is the Europe’s biggest digital technology event and Cantoche and their ILHAIRE’s partners were at this event to exhibit and demonstrate their work to incorporate laughter into human-avatar interactions. ILHAIRE is a R&D project co-financed by the European Commission.
5,000 people attended the event and most of them stopped at the booth to make our avatar system laugh automatically.
ICT was a great opportunity to show our vision about the future of our avatars using more emotions to engage online users. One of the most important emotions to encourage and motivate people is laughing, no?
