Analysis Of Queries To A Wizard-Of-Oz Mir System: Challenging Assumptions About What People Really Want

David Bainbridge 0001, Sally Jo Cunningham, J. Stephen Downie
2003 Zenodo  
Introduction In this paper we study the issue of what facilities people really want when performing a music information retrieval (MIR) task by analysing the questions and answers posted to the music category  ...  We argue this adds up to a "Wizard of Oz" system for music information retrieval-that is, the Google Answers experts simulate the processing of an MIR system.  ...

Interactive Hesitation Synthesis: Modelling and Evaluation

Simon Betz, Birte Carlmeyer, Petra Wagner, Britta Wrede
2018 Multimodal Technologies and Interaction  
Based on a series of empirical studies, we elaborated a hesitation synthesis strategy for dialogue systems, which inserts hesitations of a scalable extent wherever needed in the ongoing utterance.  ...  In order to test this assumption, we will explore the space of possible improvements of speech synthesis for interactive purposes using synthesized hesitations.  ...  ; Monika Chromik and Ayla Canpolat for their massive support during experiment 1; and all the people who invested a lot of their time to set up the CSRA as a platform for interaction research.  ...

Socially Assistive Robots for Exercising Scenarios. Studies on group effects, feedback, embodiment and adaption

Sebastian Schneider
It might be challenging to find and schedule with a partner or to commute to other places.  ...  Second, this thesis questions how a system can adapt to the user, and whether adaptivity or adaptability is enough to close the gap between user needs and system behavior.  ...  However, most of the works include some implicit direct feedback from the user (e.g., sensor data), require the user to fill out a questionnaire, or use a Wizard of Oz (WoZ) to personalize the robot behavior  ...
