Originally the term avatar came from Hindu mythology and is the name for the temporary body a god inhabits while visiting Earth. Also also represents an embodiment or concrete manifestation of an abstract concept. Avatar in the broadest sense, represents one party in an
interactive exchange.Avatar is your body double in Cyberspace, your presence in the virtual communities growing inside two and three dimensional virtual worlds online.The avatar almost always operates as an
agent of the e-Learning application, and
generally simulates human activity.
An avatar functions as a communication interface linking a user with the
information the user needs.It is neither a video demonstration nor a cartoon sample. It
responds to the usersâ„¢ requests and
provides rapid link to an information database , all these in the most understandable manner.. It is Unlike virtual reality technology, 2D and 3D virtual worlds require no special gloves, visors or hardware gear.
Microsoftâ„¢s much-maligned Clippit,
is the the Help avatar. but significantly different.
The user inputs a question or a query. Once the userâ„¢s input is complete, the workflow engine processes it and retrieves the correct answer from a knowledge database. avatar work within specific knowledge base but to make it as a talking search engine is difficult.
The machine then translates the
response into the appropriate code
before adding the animation and lip syn-chronization to the avatar.ext-to-speech software gives interactive answerability to avatar.
The ways avatar technology helps us
-Avatar technology is much better than Video Conferencing
-It works well with Intranets that do not support Video Conferencing traffic
-can prevent information bottlenecks due to personality clashes
-Can connect global offices and allow all employees to instantly connect to company data and archives.
-can express emotion through facial expressions and body posture

Originally the term avatar came from Hindu mythology and is the name for the temporary body a god inhabits while visiting Earth.
Avatar can also denote an embodiment or concrete manifestation of an abstract concept.
Avatar was first coined for use in describing users' visual embodiment in Cyberspace by Chip Morningstar in the early days of Habitat back in 1985.
Simply put, an avatar is You, or at least a facsimile of you. It is a graphical image of a user, representing yourself or someone else on a computer screen. Think of an avatar as your alter ego in the virtual world of cyberspace.
It is your body double in Cyberspace, your presence in the virtual communities growing inside two and three dimensional virtual worlds online.
The Technological Reality
Unlike virtual reality technology, 2D and 3D virtual worlds require no special gloves, visors or hardware gear.
Avatar technology can offer its share of technological benefits. For example, it is less bandwidth-intensive than regular Internet applications.
However, there are some technology issues that must be addressed if avatars are to become commonplace.
Damer's company is working with a health insurance company in Europe. They want to have a virtual community for their customer base where people can come to their headquarters.
Damer says that,"They represent a brand new meeting of human communications. The virtual worlds are worlds where people come to socialize, where people come to build cities, work, and try utopian experiences; to build together and learn together."
What Can it do for us?
Avatar technology is much better than Video Conferencing
It works well with Intranets that do not support Video Conferencing traffic
VRML avatars work with existing systems quite nicely
Avatars can prevent information bottlenecks due to personality clashes
The Future is Here
Networks will address the chaos of information overload by providing individuals with the ability to tailor how they communicate with others.
It will be done by gathering, managing, and organizing information so it will be more accessible and more useful to individuals than ever before.
Using avatars that will provide the filtering, tuning, adjudication, and other flow controls on information.
