Wiki - BML 1.0 Standard - Mindmakers

This document contains background information, descriptions of typical use contexts, and, most importantly, the syntactic and semantic details of the XML format of the Behavior Markup Language. The Behavior Markup Language, or BML, is an XML description language for controlling the verbal and nonverbal behavior of (humanoid) embodied conversational agents (ECAs). A BML block (see example in figure below) describes the physical realization of behaviors (such as speech and gesture) and the synchronization constraints between these behaviors. BML is not concerned with the communicative intent underlying the requested behaviors. The module that executes behaviors specified in BML on the embodiment of the ECA is called a BML Realizer.
