Ideas on Multi-layer Dialogue Management for Multi-party, Multi-conversation, Multi-modal Communication [chapter]

David R Traum
Computational Linguistics in the Netherlands 2001  
We present here a multiple layer approach towards modelling and managing these complexities, including who is accessible for conversation, paying attention, involved in a conversation, as well as turn-taking  ...  Overview Most current dialogue systems concern only a short dialogue between a single system and single user, focused on a single task.  ...  Larry Tuch wrote the script with creative input from Richard Lindheim and technical input on Army procedures from Elke Hutto and General Pat O'Neal.  ...

Meetings, gatherings, and events in smart environments

Anton Nijholt
2004 Proceedings of the 2004 ACM SIGGRAPH international conference on Virtual Reality continuum and its applications in industry - VRCAI '04  
We survey our research on smart meeting rooms and its relevance for augmented reality meeting support and virtual reality generation of meetings in real-time or off-line.  ...  It consists of several layers: a contact layer (whether and how individuals are accessible for communication), an attention layer (the objects or process that agents attend to), the conversation layer  ...  Multi-party Interaction: BodyChat In VR environments some research on multi-party interaction can be found.  ...

A Comprehensive Context Model for Multi-party Interactions with Virtual Characters [chapter]

Norbert Pfleger, Markus Löckelt
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Contextual information plays a crucial role in nearly every conversational setting. When people engage in conversations they rely on what has previously been uttered or done in various ways.  ...  In this paper we describe the design and implementation of a comprehensive context model for virtual characters.  ...  The model itself is organized in three layers (based on the ideas of [LuperFoy, 1991] ): (i) a Modality Layer representing the surface realizations of objects, (ii) a Discourse Object Layer representing  ...

Temporal patterns in multi-modal social interaction between elderly users and service robot

Ning Wang, Alessandro Di Nuovo, Angelo Cangelosi, Ray Jones
2019 Interaction Studies  
Social interaction, especially for older people living alone is a challenge currently facing human-robot interaction (HRI). There has been little research on user preference towards HRI interfaces.  ...  The developed dual-modal robot interface offered older users options of speech or touch screen to perform tasks. Fifteen people aged from 70 to 89 years old, participated.  ...  The dialogue manager controlled the flow of the conversation with the robot. The Olympus dialogue manager was an open-source resource, supporting multi-modal infrastructure [21] .  ...

Anton Nijholt, Rutger Rienks, Job Zwiers, Dennis Reidsma
2006 The Visual Computer  
Captured information can also be manipulated and in turn displayed on different media.  ...  We stress that this information is interesting not only for real-time meeting support, but also for remote participants and off-line consultation of meeting information.  ...  Job Zwiers and Jan Peciva of the University of Brno were responsible for realizing ideas existing in our research group for many years and explained in papers since 2000.  ...

Robust Multi-stream Keyword and Non-linguistic Vocalization Detection for Computationally Intelligent Virtual Agents [chapter]

Martin Wöllmer, Erik Marchi, Stefano Squartini, Björn Schuller

Multi-stakeholder platforms: integrating society in water resource management?

Jeroen Warner
2005 Ambiente & Sociedade  
Multi-Stakeholder Platforms are a currently popular concept in the international water world. It is however not a very well defined phenomenon.  ...  In closing, the article then identifies reasons for non-participation, suggesting that it is an inevitable corollary of organised participation.  ...  Much of the MSP literature is inspired by Habermas' (1984) ideas on communicative rationality, in which to strive for 'authentic speech situations' where everybody will speak their minds regardless of  ...
