The Virtual Guide Sun Tzu was demonstrated at the U.S. Joint Forces Command (USJFCOM) exhibit at MODSIM World, on October 14-16, 2009 at the Virginia Beach Convention Center.  Sun Tzu uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies from Daden Limited inside of the virtual world Second Life.  This advanced AI provides many capabilities for the use of automated avatars in virtual worlds for training and as virtual guides including:

  • Guided tours
  • Avatar movements
  • Teleportation
  • Web scraping
  • Chatbot
  • Emotion engine
  • Instant messaging
  • Twitter updates
  • Ability to learn from the environment

The "web scraping" technology enables the Virtual Guide to respond to questions by scraping data off web services (like Wikipedia and others) to provide responses to your questions.
