Humans use non-verbal behaviors to signal their intent, emotions, and attitudes in human-human interactions. Embodied conversational agents (ECA), therefore, need this ability as well in order to make interaction pleasant and efficient. An essential part of non-verbal communication is gesticulation. The task of hand gesture generation has been initially approached mainly by rule-based methods, but current state-of-the-art methods are data-driven, and we continue this line of research. In this talk, I will present my work addressing the two components of my thesis: generation and evaluation of co-speech gestures for embodied conversational agents.
