Kiyonori Ohtake, Teruhisa Misu, Chiori Hori, Hideki Kashioka, Satoshi Nakamura
2009 Proceedings of the 7th Workshop on Asian Language Resources - ALR7   unpublished
This paper introduces a new corpus of consulting dialogues, which is designed for training a dialogue manager that can handle consulting dialogues through spontaneous interactions from the tagged dialogue  ...  This paper outlines our taxonomy of dialogue act annotation that can describe two aspects of an utterances: the communicative function (speech act), and the semantic content of the utterance.  ...  Our future work also includes a condensation or selection of dialogue acts that directly affect the dialogue flow in order to construct a consulting dialogue system using the DA tags as an input.  ...

DialMed: A Dataset for Dialogue-based Medication Recommendation [article]

Zhenfeng He and Yuqiang Han and Zhenqiu Ouyang and Wei Gao and Hongxu Chen and Guandong Xu and Jian Wu
2022 arXiv   pre-print
In this work, we construct DialMed, the first high-quality dataset for medical dialogue-based medication recommendation task.  ...  Medication recommendation is a crucial task for intelligent healthcare systems. Previous studies mainly recommend medications with electronic health records(EHRs).  ...  For each raw medical dialogue, the annotators need to annotate the disease of patients and medications recommended by doctors.  ...

Negotiation of Antibiotic Treatment in Medical Consultations: A Corpus Based Study

Nan Wang
2017 Proceedings of ACL 2017, Student Research Workshop  
In social science studies, approaches such as conversation analysis have been applied to identify those language practices. Current research for dialogue systems offer an alternative approach.  ...  Past research proved that corpusbased approaches have been effectively used for research involving modeling dialogue acts and sequential relations.  ...  To accelerate the annotation process, semi-supervised methods are used for dialogue acts recognition and classification.  ...

Combinatorial Dialogue Authoring [chapter]

James Owen Ryan, Casey Barackman, Nicholas Kontje, Taylor Owen-Milner, Marilyn A. Walker, Michael Mateas, Noah Wardrip-Fruin
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present an annotation scheme and combinatorial authoring procedure by which a small base of annotated human-authored dialogue exchanges can be exploited to automatically generate many new exchanges.  ...  We believe that combinatorial dialogue authoring represents an immediate and huge reduction in authorial burden relative to current authoring practice.  ...  It is infeasible to anticipate all the potential states that a dynamic system might get into, let alone to write fully realized dialogue for each of them.  ...

Toward Data-Driven Collaborative Dialogue Systems: The JILDA Dataset

Irene Sucameli, Alessandro Lenci, Bernardo Magnini, Manuela Speranza, Maria Simi
2021 Italian Journal of Computational Linguistics  
Today's goal-oriented dialogue systems are designed to operate in restricted domains and with the implicit assumption that the user goals fit the domain ontology of the system.  ...  To foster research on data-driven collaborative dialogues, in this paper we present JILDA, a fully annotated dataset of chat-based, mixed-initiative Italian dialogues related to the job-offer domain.  ...  Dialogue Acts For our annotation we considered six Dialogue acts, and we annotated both user's and system's utterances. Each act describes a specific communicative intention of the speaker.  ...

Opportunities and Obligations to Take Turns in Collaborative Multi-Party Human-Robot Interaction

Martin Johansson, Gabriel Skantze
2015 Proceedings of the 16th Annual Meeting of the Special Interest Group on Discourse and Dialogue  
In this paper we present a data-driven model for detecting opportunities and obligations for a robot to take turns in multi-party discussions about objects.  ...  The model makes a combined detection of addressee and turn-yielding cues, using multi-modal data from voice activity, syntax, prosody, head pose, movement of cards, and dialogue context.  ...  The System's Previous Dialogue Act To represent the dialogue context, we used the last system dialogue act as a feature.  ...

Ranking Multiple Dialogue States by Corpus Statistics to Improve Discourse Understanding in Spoken Dialogue Systems

2009 IEICE transactions on information and systems  
This process enables a system to understand user utterances from the context of a dialogue.  ...  Ambiguity in user utterances caused by multiple speech recognition hypotheses and parsing results sometimes makes it difficult for a system to decide on a single interpretation of a user intention.  ...  Thanks also go to Hideki Isozaki, Kiyoaki Aikawa, Kohji Dohsaka, Noboru Miyazaki, Kentaro Ishizuka, and Matthias Denecke for their helpful comments and suggestions.  ...

2021 Language Resources and Evaluation  
AbstractLanguage resources for studying doctor–patient interaction are rare, primarily due to the ethical issues related to recording real medical consultations.  ...  Having presented the design and construction of the corpus, we then go on to briefly describe how the multi-modal nature of the corpus allows it to be analysed from several different perspectives.  ...  The authors are also grateful to the anonymous reviewers, and to colleagues for their comments and feedback on earlier versions of this work; we are also particularly grateful to John Lawrence for rendering  ...
