"ANA is an empathic theater installation for shared story improvisation, in which a chatbot and visitors collaboratively improvise a story. The style and content of the story can be influenced by the affective context of this communication situation. Together, they develop the story and respond to the emotional signals of the other person. The goal of the project is to demonstrate the potential of empathy between AI and humans and thus contribute to the understanding of human-machine relations."
