Abstract

The Virtual Facilitator project is aimed at mediating human conflict and facilitating human interaction in real-time by replacing scarce and prohibitively expensive human facilitation experts with inexpensive and ubiquitously available intelligent software. As the Virtual Facilitator has evolved, the management interface has been clogged down from an endless progression of ad hoc additions. A major revision of the administrative graphical user interface did not only improve the work flow of those in charge of creating and managing sets of facilitative guidelines, but also implicitly benefited the experience of the end user by creating more intuitive conversation interventions in a more intuitive environment. Additionally, many more modifications were needed in order to maintain the project, such as providing a system of grouping users and assigning permissions, creating administrative editors, and designing an interface for manipulating states in our learning classifier system.

Biography

Andrew plans to graduate with a Bachelor in Computer Science from Missouri University of Science & Technology in 2014. Last summer he was an intern at Rapportive in San Francisco during the summer of 2011, and returned for the 2011 school year to work on the Virtual Facilitator through undergraduate research.
