Abstract
With the advent of software agents and assistants, the concept of so called conversational user interfaces evolved, incorporating natural language interaction, dialogue management, and anthropomorphic representations. Today's challenge is to build a suitable visualization architecture for anthropomorphic conversational user interfaces, and to design believable and appropriate face-to-face interaction imitating human attributes such as emotions. The system is designed an autonomous agent enabling easy integration into a variety of scenarios. Architecture, protocols, and graphical output are discussed.
