The second volume of the handbook starts with perspectives on human-agent interaction, examined from different angles such as interaction in social space, group interaction, or long-term interaction. It continues with an extensive overview summarizing research and systems of human–agent platforms, alongside with some of the major application areas of socially interactive agents such as education, aging support, autism and games, highlighting the benefits of SIAs to individuals and society. It concludes with a challenge discussion containing an interview with international experts of their field, discussing the major challenges SIA research is facing today, and pointing out potential future directions.
