Generating Dialogues for Virtual Agents Using Nested Textual Coherence Relations [chapter]

Hugo Hernault, Paul Piwek, Helmut Prendinger, Mitsuru Ishizuka
Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we focus on the monologue-to-dialogue transformation, and describe how it uses textual coherence relations to map text segments to query-answer pairs between an expert and a layman agent  ...  Our system enables automatic transformation of monological text into a dialogue. The dialogue is then "acted out" by virtual agents, using synthetic speech and gestures.  ...  This paper presents a significant extension of previously published work [4] in that it introduces a method for generating dialogues from not just flat but also nested coherence relations in text.  ...

EMISSOR: A platform for capturing multimodal interactions as Episodic Memories and Interpretations with Situated Scenario-based Ontological References [article]

Selene Báez Santamaría, Thomas Baier, Taewoon Kim, Lea Krause, Jaap Kruijt, Piek Vossen
2021 arXiv   pre-print
EMISSOR can record and annotate experiments in virtual and real-world, combine data, evaluate system behavior and their performance for preset goals but also model the accumulation of knowledge and interpretations  ...  Annotations are eventually mapped to explicit identities and relations in the eKG.  ...  Model causal coherent relations between subsets of segments across modalities 6. Model physical and virtual real-world contexts 7.  ...

Programming the Vicious Circle: Austen, Deleuze and Viral Repetition

Mark Horvath, Adam Lovasz
2017 Rhizomes: Cultural Studies in Emerging Knowledge  
In the example of the "Austen-virus," textualities return, reappropriated by malware and other malignant agents.  ...  Agents of multiplicity, such as glitches, bugs and viruses, breed new layers of meaninglessness, spreading chaos throughout networks, blending various strands of code, injecting ruination into coherence  ...  Interobjective dialogue operates on the level of textuality in the manner of a generative imperative.  ...

Dialogue patterns—A visual language for dynamic dialogue

J. Siegel, D. Szafron
2009 Journal of Visual Languages and Computing  
We present "generative dialogue patterns" as a new visual language for designing dynamic dialogs and generating the program code that is necessary to select the appropriate remarks during the dialogue.  ...  We use a case study from the computer games domain to evaluate the effectiveness of generative dialogue patterns.  ...  We would like to thank the members of the ScriptEase team who provided help and guidance during this research and whose broad shoulders provided the research and development that enabled the dialogue pattern  ...

Towards Explainable Social Agent Authoring tools: A case study on FAtiMA-Toolkit [article]

Manuel Guimarães, Joana Campos, Pedro A. Santos, João Dias, Rui Prada
2022 arXiv   pre-print
One of the key findings is the fact that FAtiMA-Toolkit's conceptual model is, in general, understandable, however the emotional-based concepts were not as easily understood and used by the authors.  ...  In this paper we introduce the concept of Explainable Social Agent Authoring Tools with the goal of analysing if authoring tools for social agents are understandable and interpretable.  ...  Acknowledgements This study received Portuguese national funds from FCT -Foundation for Science and Technology through project: UIDB/50021/2020 and UIDB/04326/2020 and SLICE PTDC/CCI-COM/30787/2017.  ...
