Companions project launch meeting. Yorick Wilks and Marc Cavazza provide an outline of the companion: a conversational agent that stays with one for a long period, appears to learn one’s tastes and habits, and helps to organize and select personal material for its ‘owner’, carrying out activities within a person’s digital space on the Internet, such as organising image and text records of a person’s life as a coherent narrative.
