Abstract

In this paper, we propose a model to control an agent's gaze behavior called Interactive Kinetics-Based Gaze Direction Model(iK-Gaze). iK-Gaze is a model used in one-to-one interaction between an agent and a human, where the agent's gaze direction is calculated using an energy function which uses the human's gaze direction as its input. iK-Gaze aims to generate the agent's gaze through interactions with a human rather than using predefined motions and predefined timings. Contrary to rule-based or statistics-based models, the agent's gaze motion changes dynamically according to the human's gaze motion. Moreover, by utilizing three parameters of the desire to look, the mutual gaze hesitation, and the mutual gaze stress in the iK-Gaze, the tendency of the agent's gaze behavior can be changed easily. From the case study, the fact that agent's gaze behavior changes according to the human gaze behavior is confirmed.
