Your Wit Is My Command

To celebrate the EC FET programme and Future Week (, we are launching a week of embodied story-telling with Kim and Bap, our robot actors.

Each day of Future Week we'll post a new video of Kim and Bap, either introducing our current research in story-telling and story-generation (which stems from the FET projects PROSECCO and WHIM) or enacting a new computer-generated story for your delectation.

Watch this space!

Future Week is September 23 - 29th.
