Hi Peter,

As implemented in MS Office by MS, I agree that it

characters carrying
a conversation, that can vary with the user's input.

I doubt the technology could do that. The MS agent
calls on sophisticated algorithms using Bayesian
Probability formulae to interpret the state of mind of
the user. Unfortunately it only has a user's sequence
of keystrokes to go by to decide that the user is
confused or at a loss as to how to proceed. This is
clearly not enough which is why the agent gets it
wrong so often.
