Persona™ is an easy-to-use graphical tool that allows trainers to rapidly develop and execute sophisticated, interactive behaviors for virtual characters. This enables trainers to efficiently create new training scenarios or to adapt existing scenarios based on the skills and needs of a particular person or group being trained. Persona was originally developed under an effort for the US Army to create a training application to teach Soldiers mission-critical social and cultural skills.
