Dany is a virtual advisor at the DAAD Website. You can ask him questions about studying in Germany. He was launched February 2004 by DAAD. He is a cartoonlike figure who can change emotional expression.
A chat bot is a humanlike conversational character.
Its conversational skills and other humanlike behaviour is simulated through artificial intelligence.
It often acts as a virtual assistant and it can have its own visualisation through an avatar
or it is faceless. We expect that through the years every conversational chat bot will grow into a real virtual human.
