Dario Nardi on Socialbot

When I met Dario Nardi earlier this year he told me he prepared a video for Frontiers of Interaction II on socialbot as he couldn't be there in person.

Now some kind soul has uploaded his talk on youtube (Part 1, Part 2).

AFAIU socialbot is a little like Eliza but not aiming at being a therapist, rather than that it imitates cognitive behavior by showing aspects of memory, inference and animated gestures; and it uses speech recognition as well. When used in a seminar with students interaction sessions get logged and are used as a harness to further development of socialbot's behavior.
