Anthropopathic Agents in E-learning Systems Applied to the Area of Medicine

C. Analide, J. Machado, É. Gomes, and J. Neves (Portugal)



The association of human properties and behaviours to virtual entities, namely to agents or computees, has been made, almost exclusively, by an evaluation function that measures such properties, grading it. In this paper, it it presented an alternative way to analyse intelligence, behind an agent's knowledge, through the use of anthropopathic functions. The enforcement of such attitudes is made via the extensions of the functions or predicates referred to above, which make the agents or computees body of knowledge, and are to be applied in distance learning systems embedded in websites prepared for medical education.
