With the introduction of software agents and assistants, the concept of so-called social user interfaces evolved, incorporating natural language interaction, context awareness and anthropomorphic representations of visuals, scales, and degrees of freedom for interactions.Today's challenge is to build a suitable visualization architecture for anthropomorphic conversational user interfaces, and to design for the believable and appropriate inclusion of human attributes (such as emotions) in a face-to-face interaction. Integrated approaches to these tasks are presented here.
