CkuCkuCk 1.0 is a software component for the automated generation of multimedia presentations. It uses a hierarchical planner to decompose a complex presentation goal into primitive actions. The execution of these primitive actions results into a script that specifies the final presentation. Typically, the presentation script is represented in an XML-based markup-language. Among other things, CkuCkuCk 1.0 has been used to generate control sequences for characters based on the Persona-Enabling Toolkit (PET), the Microsoft Agent toolkit and SMIL-expressions (Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language).
