Masterminds - Virtual reality in education

Given the rapid changes in our society and the important role of technology in this process, the current education system is outdated and in dire need of change. The use of artificial intelligence in combination with virtual reality environments may offer a solution, especially in the embodiment of a virtual teacher.

The behaviour and even the appearance of the virtual teacher can be adapted to best suit the student's interests. In the project, we will improve the technology of avatars and make them as natural as possible. This means that we will be working on natural speech and behaviours, facial movements and appropriate expressions to go with a dialogue.  

This project has been made possible by the Regio Deal Midden- en West-Brabant. For more information, please visit or
