title Design Agents in Virtual Worlds - A User-Centred Virtual Architecture Agent
source Gero JS and Brazier FMT (eds) (2002) Agents in Design 2002. Key Centre of Design Computing and Cognition, University of Sydney, pp. 23-38
summary This paper presents a User-centred Virtual Architecture (UcVA) Agent, a kind of rational agent capable of representing a person in virtual worlds and designing virtual worlds based on current needs. The two major structural aspects of this agent are Avatar Agent and Design Agent. The UcVA agent in this paper is presented from various perspectives: structure, process, and use scenarios. A proposed application of these agent models and an analysis of User-centred Virtual Architecture designed by this agent illustrates and evaluates this approach to designing virtual architecture.
