AceTalk is a presentation planning system that brainstorms with users to explore engaging presentation structures and content. AceTalk is a PowerPoint add-in with a virtual assistant that motivates and guides the user through a brainstorming process while also generating slides.
‘During the [brainstorming] process, [the virtual assistant] provides the presenter with narrative templates and recommendations drawn from the literature on presentation and classical rhetoric. To compensate for the time spent on planning, the system automatically generates provisional slides from the brainstormed content.’
