Research carried out in authoring systems for embodied agent based presentations have traditionally been confined to scripted interactive presentations. In recent years, however, there has been a gradual shift to adopting a more dynamic approach that supports a higher degree of flexibility in user-agent interactivity, where the user is allowed to engage in more natural conversations with the agent. In this paper, we will describe a conversational module based on techniques used in chat-bots, that we have implemented as an extension to our previously developed agent authoring system.
