Abstract: This paper presents the design, implementation and evaluation of the interactive installation The Muses of Poetry (MoP). In MoP the user interacts with a virtual character, who in turn recites poetry while manifesting the emotional content of the poem using visual cues (as facial expressions) and an affective voice. The novelty of MoP is that it combines real-time character animation, semantic analysis, natural voice interaction and poetry to create a unique and surprising experience for the user.
Keywords: User experience, affective computing, human-computer interaction
