Abstract

We are working towards computational models of mind of virtual characters that act as suspects in interview (interrogation) training of police officers. We implemented a model that calculates the responses of the virtual suspect based on theory and observation. We evaluated it by means of our test, the “Guess who you are talking to?” test. We show that this test can contribute to building response models for believable virtual agents.
