The Oz Project at CMU is developing technology and art to help artists create high quality interactive
drama, based in part on AI technologies. This especially means building believable agents in
dramatically interesting micro-worlds.

University of Birmingham
Stanford University, Barbara Hayes-Roth and Ed Feigenbaum.
The Virtual Theater project studies the creation of
intelligent, automated characters that can act either in
well-defined stories or in improvisational environments.
The Software Agents group of the MIT Media Laboratory
investigates computer systems to which one can delegate tasks. Software
agents differ from conventional software in that they
are long-lived, semi-autonomous, proactive, and adaptive. The group develops
techniques and builds prototype agent systems that can be tested.
