Abstract
This paper presents the definition a model of motivation for artificial intelligence (AI)-driven avatars in virtual worlds. The model is theoretically-inspired, based on understanding and sharing other people's intentions and can be reused for serious games applications. The AI architecture presented aims at providing a virtual world avatar with the affective capabilities to detect motivational states. The model consists of two general modules for understanding and sharing motivation; understanding consists of shaping a model of the world while sharing consists of deciding the best course of action and reaction in the virtual world. Future areas for research are defined, including practical applications of this architecture for serious games and activities in virtual world applications.
