Leveraging LLM Capabilities for iVC in Game Planning

Leveraging LLM Capabilities for iVC in Game Planning

This research project aims to explore using large language models (LLMs) to develop intelligent virtual characters (iVCs) that enable more natural, contextually appropriate responses and intuitive interactions between users and virtual avatar and create more engaging and compelling user experiences. We will investigate strategies for fine-tuning LLMs on domain-specific data, modeling personality & communication style, and integrating knowledge management to understand the connection between avatars and game players.
