Bot Technology In Second Life For Medical Training
Location: Waiting Room
I'm impressed with this YouTube video, done my my SL Roundtable colleague Kali Pizzaro. "Colin," the bot shown, can reply to simple text-chat questions, and as this technology develops, it could provide a good training simulation for medical professionals.
Kali's original post on this notes how the test demonstrates "our work on connecting “Second Life” avatar-patient-bots with specially written AIML [artificial intelligence markup language] and speech synthesis software. Hopefully we’ll add speech recognition too."
