@article { guimarães19, abstract = {FAtiMA Toolkit is a collection of open-source tools that is designed to facilitate the creation and use of cognitive agents with socioemotional skills. The toolkit was developed with a focus on accessibility so it could be used by both researchers and game developers. It provides a computational model of emotions that is based on the OCC appraisal theory as well as an explicit dialogue structure that is familiar to game developers while maintaining the flexibility of an approach based on autonomous agents. Among various use cases, the toolkit has been successfully applied by an external game studio in their development of two serious games.}, journal = {Proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Autonomous Agents and MultiAgent Systems}, keywords = {Intelligent Virtual Agents;Computer Games;Affective Computing;}, month = {May}, pages = {2357--2359}, publisher = {International Foundation for Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems}, title = {An Accessible Toolkit for the Creation of Socio-EmotionalAgents}, year = {2019}, author = {Manuel Guimarães and Samuel Mascarenhas and Rui Prada and Pedro Santos and João Dias} }
