Acknowledgements The editors would like to thank the Center for Interdisciplinary Research at Bielefeld University (ZiF) for hosting the research group on "Embodied Communication in Humans and Machines  ...  This chapter has appeared in Lenzen M, Wachsmuth I, and Knoblich G, eds.

Communication and Folk Psychology

Richard Breheny
2006 Mind & Language  
This is the code model of communication. According to the code model, an utterance has an interpretation which is fixed by some deterministic set of rules applied to the utterance's form.  ...  Prominent accounts of language use (those of Grice, Lewis, Stalnaker, Sperber and Wilson among others) have viewed basic communicative acts as essentially involving the attitudes of the participating agents  ...  Just as an agent may be taking themselves to be offering food but be mistaken, so an agent may take themselves to be drawing someone's attention to a situation, but the situation does not exist.  ...

Interpersonal Communication as Social Action

Antonella Carassa, Marco Colombetti
2015 Philosophy of the Social Sciences  
We compare a number of influential approaches to human communication with the aim of understanding what it means for interpersonal communication to be a form of social action.  ...  We then argue in favor of a small-scale view of communication capable of accounting for the normative effects of communicative acts; to this purpose we introduce the concept of interpersonal normativity  ...  But how is an addressee supposed to understand, for example, that an utterance is used ironically and standard conventions are therefore suspended?  ...

How Infants Learn Word Meanings and Propositional Attitudes: A Neural Network Model [chapter]

Alistair Knott
2014 Communicative Action  
He proposes that the infant's understanding of the intentions of the speaker and hearer in this context plays a crucial role in her ability to learn an association between the linguistic form of the utterance  ...  The other important pragmatic ability is the ability to infer the communicative intentions of an observed agent, i.e. to infer the goal underlying the agent's communicative actions.  ...  We also assume the infant is able to follow the gaze of an observed human agent-an ability which is also attested at 10 months, and which develops rapidly from 10-18 months (Butterworth and Jarrett, 1991  ...

Revisiting Human-Agent Communication: The Importance of Joint Co-construction and Understanding Mental States

Stefan Kopp, Nicole Krämer
2021 Frontiers in Psychology  
We base our argument on a vast body of work on human-human communication and its psychological processes that we reason to be relevant and necessary to take into account when modeling human-agent communication  ...  The study of human-human communication and the development of computational models for human-agent communication have diverged significantly throughout the last decade.  ...  modeling human-agent communication.  ...

Adding Communicative and Affective Strategies to an Embodied Conversational Agent to Enhance Second Language Learners' Willingness to Communicate

Emmanuel Ayedoun, Yuki Hayashi, Kazuhisa Seta
2018 International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education  
This paper describes an embodied conversational agent enhanced with specific conversational strategies aiming to foster learners' readiness towards communication in a second language (L2).  ...  Here, we focus on the dialogue management aspects of our approach and propose a model based on a set of communication strategies (CS) and affective backchannels (AB) to foster such agents' ability to carry  ...  Spoken Dialogue Systems Spoken dialogue systems are defined as computer systems with which humans interact on a turn-by-turn basis, and with which spoken natural language plays an important role in communication  ...

Presumptions in Communication

Andrei Moldovan
2016 Studia Humana  
it pretends to offer an account of all such human interactions.  ...  As Goodwin and Kauffeld suggest, a more promising starting point is to consider the variety of contextually determined presumptions that we make about speakers and that we rely upon in interpreting utterances  ...  But the Gricean view of communication fails in as much as it pretends to offer an account of all human communicative interactions.  ...

Prolegomena to a Theory of Communication and Affect [chapter]

Aaron Sloman
1992 Communication from an Artificial Intelligence Perspective  
High "insistence" of motives is defined in relation to a tendency to penetrate an attention filter mechanism, which seems to account for the partial loss of control involved in emotions.  ...  As a step towards comprehensive computer models of communication, and effective human machine dialogue, some of the relationships between communication and affect are explored.  ...  Acknowledgements I am grateful to several colleagues who have either commented on an earlier draft or discussed these issues with me, including Aluizio Araujo, Margaret Boden, Monica Croucher, Glyn Humphreys  ...

is better to pass over to a human operator.  ...  It turns out that the closer we get to a realistic scenario, the less reliable is prosody as an indicator of the speakersÕ emotional state.  ...  We want to thank the three anonymous reviewers for their comments.  ...

Learning communicative actions of conflicting human agents

Boris A. Galitsky, Sergei O. Kuznetsov
2008 Journal of experimental and theoretical artificial intelligence (Print)  
Acknowledgements The second author was supported by the project 'Automated cognitive reasoning for data analysis in intelligent systems' of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Russian Foundation for Humanities  ...  In case of human agents, an adequate behavioural model that gives a plausible data structure for machine learning is essential as well.  ...  We take advantage of this possibility and propose an interactive form where the required parameters of communicative actions are specified from the viewpoint of a given agent.  ...

Emotional tone and argumentation in risk communication

Denis Hilton
2008 Judgment and Decision Making  
I review some studies that illustrate this perspective by highlighting the role of emotional undertone in risk communication and management, and show how it differs from existing models of risk communication  ...  In this paper I explore how the evolution of emotional expression and co-operative planning in humans may inform the way they communicate about risks, and what implication this may have for models of rationality  ...  Human communication about threats: From automatic to intentional communication The automatic expression of emotion communicates information about environmental benefits and hazards to others.  ...
