AbstractMigration is the ability of an agent to transfer from one embodiment, for example a robot, to another such as a mobile phone. For agents that are to act as personal companions migration is desirable as access to different capabilities can provide more constant companionship to a user. This interactive demonstration of screen to phone migration illustrates one application of the open-source architecture developed on the LIREC project to support migration of an affective agent across many types of embodiment.
