Automatic Modification of Communication Style in Dialogue Management

Louisa Pragst, Juliana Miehle, Stefan Ultes, Wolfgang Minker
2016 Proceedings of the INLG 2016 Workshop on Computational Creativity in Natural Language Generation  
In this work, we illustrate how verbosity and directness may be utilised in adaptive dialogue management and present different approaches to automatically generate varying levels of verbosity and directness  ...  In task-oriented dialogues, there is often only one right answer the system can give. However, a lack of variation can seem repetitive and unnatural.  ...  Acknowledgements This paper is part of a project that has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 645012.  ...

Simplifying Semantic Annotations of SMCalFlow

Joram Meron
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Despite the availability, size and richness of this annotated corpus, it has seen only very limited use in dialogue systems research work, at least in part due to the difficulty in understanding and using  ...  SMCalFlow is a large corpus of semantically detailed annotations of task-oriented natural dialogues.  ...  Instead, the modifications had to be done fully automatically, using a programmatic solution to do the conversion.  ...

Human-computer interface development: concepts and systems for its management

H. Rex Hartson, Deborah Hix
1989 ACM Computing Surveys  
It is a characteristic that separates design of the interface from design afthe computational component of an application system so that modifications in either tend not to cause changes in the other.  ...  Structural models of the human-computer interface serve as frameworks for understanding the elements of interfaces and for guiding the dialogue developer in their construction.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors gratefully acknowledge the contributions to the DMS research mentioned in this survey by other members of our research team, especially our friend, colleague, and fellow traveler  ...

Modeling parallel state charts for multithreaded multimodal dialogues

Gregor Mehlmann, Birgit Endraß, Elisabeth André
2011 Proceedings of the 13th international conference on multimodal interfaces - ICMI '11  
In this paper, we present a modeling approach for the management of highly interactive, multithreaded and multimodal dialogues.  ...  An interpreter allows the realtime visualization and modification of the model to allow a rapid prototyping and easy debugging.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The work described in this paper was supported by the European Commission within the 7th Framework Programme in the project IRIS (project no. 231824).  ...

Human-computer interaction: A preliminary social psychological analysis

Leo R. Quintana, Charles R. Crowell, John B. Pryor, John Adamopoulos
1982 Behavior Research Methods  
In order to assist in the systematic exploration of this possibility, we developed DIALOGUE, an on-line system to investigate the effects of varying the computer's responses to the user.  ...  DIALOGUE also includes a data manager that allows the experimenter to examine or modify the information collected by the presentation program.  ...  The data manager is designed strictly for management of the specially structured subject data file and does not support the creation, display, or modification of the dialogue files.  ...
