Steadily increasing computational power leverages the use of more advanced techniques from artificial intelligence, computer graphics, and areas that have not been directly associated to virtual worlds, like Semantic Web technology. The development of highly realistic simulated realities is a non-trivial task and a cross-discipline endeavour. The ISReal (Intelligent Simulated Realities) platform uses these technologies to simulate virtual environments that are enriched with a high-level semantic description and populated by intelligent agents using SemanticWeb technologies to perceive, understand, and interact with their environment. In this paper, we present the basic architecture of the ISReal platform and show the user interaction in an agent assisted learning scenario.
