Adaptivity and Response Generation in a Spoken Dialogue System [chapter]

Kristiina Jokinen, Graham Wilcock
2003 Text, Speech and Language Technology  
The paper addresses the issue of how to increase adaptivity in response generation for a spoken dialogue system.  ...  This allows a simpler design of each generator agent, while increasing the overall system adaptivity to meet the requirements for flexible cooperation in incremental and immediate interactive situations  ...  Related research has studied adaptivity with respect to system strategies, and identified confirmation as one of the helpful strategies that spoken dialogue systems can use in order to show cooperation  ...

Flexible guidance generation using user model in spoken dialogue systems

Kazunori Komatani, Shinichi Ueno, Tatsuya Kawahara, Hiroshi G. Okuno
2003 Proceedings of the 41st Annual Meeting on Association for Computational Linguistics - ACL '03  
We address appropriate user modeling in order to generate cooperative responses to each user in spoken dialogue systems.  ...  Experimental evaluation shows that the cooperative responses adaptive to individual users serve as good guidance for novice users without increasing the dialogue duration for skilled users.  ...  Introduction A spoken dialogue system is one of the promising applications of the speech recognition and natural language understanding technologies.  ...

Natural Language and Dialogue Interfaces [chapter]

Kristiina Jokinen
2009 Human Factors and Ergonomics  
This Chapter discusses natural language dialogue interfaces and develops the view of interactive systems as communicating agents which can cooperate with the user on a shared task.  ...  The notion of natural interaction thus refers to the spoken dialogue system's ability to support functionality that the user finds intuitive and easy, i.e., the interface should afford natural interaction  ...  L: thank you, goodbye A: goodbye This dialogue shows how the speakers cooperate with each other on building a shared where the system answers a user question in spoken and graphical form: The tram 7  ...

Constructive dialogue management for speech-based interaction systems

Kristiina Jokinen
2006 Proceedings of the 11th international conference on Intelligent user interfaces - IUI '06  
The tutorial is based on the framework of Constructive Dialogue Management, and focuses especially on the technological and theoretical challenges in designing adaptive and intelligent conversational systems  ...  The tutorial will introduce the major topics, established practices and methodologies in dialogue management research.  ...  Relatively little work has been devoted in defining the criteria according to which we could evaluate dialogue systems in terms of increased naturalness and usability.  ...

This paper describes MIMIC, an adaptive mixed initiative spoken dialogue system that provides movie showtime information. MIMIC improves upon previous dialogue systems in two respects.  ...  Second, MIMIC's dialogue management architecture decouples its initiative module from the goal and response strategy selection processes, providing a general framework for developing spoken dialogue systems  ...  Acknowledgments The author would like to thank Egbert Ammicht, Antoine Saad, Qiru Zhou, Wolfgang Reichl, and Stefan Ortmanns for their help on system integration and on ASR/telephony server development  ...

Adaptive User Modelling in AthosMail [chapter]

Kristiina Jokinen, Kari Kanto, Jyrki Rissanen
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we discuss the adaptive User Model component of the AthosMail system, and describe especially the Cooperativity Model which produces recommendations for the appropriate explicitness of the  ...  The Cooperativity Model deals with the system's dialogue control and explicitness of the given information: these two aspects affect the system's interaction capabilities and thus naturalness of the dialogue  ...  We want to thank all the project participants for cooperation and discussions.  ...

First-Personness Approach to Co-operative Multimodal Interaction [chapter]

Pernilla Qvarfordt, Lena Santamarta
2000 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Using natural language in addition to graphical user interfaces is often used as an argument for a better interaction. However, just adding spoken language might not lead to a better interaction.  ...  In this article we will look deeper into how the spoken language should be used in a co-operative multimodal interface.  ...  For this reason Cheepen and Monaghan argues that what is natural in a human-human dialogue is not natural in a human-computer dialogue.  ...

A Neural Network Approach to Intention Modeling for User-Adapted Conversational Agents

David Griol, Zoraida Callejas
2016 Computational Intelligence and Neuroscience  
Spoken dialogue systems have been proposed to enable a more natural and intuitive interaction with the environment and human-computer interfaces.  ...  We have evaluated our proposal to develop a user-adapted spoken dialogue system that facilitates tourist information and services and provide a detailed discussion of the positive influence of our proposal  ...  In this paper we present a framework to develop spoken dialogue systems able to adapt dynamically to the requisites and preferences of the user.  ...

Ludovic Le, Philippe Bretier, Patrice Terrier
2008 Human Computer Interaction: New Developments

A new taxonomy for the quality of telephone services based on spoken dialogue systems

Sebastian Möller
2002 Proceedings of the 3rd SIGdial workshop on Discourse and dialogue -  
This document proposes a new taxonomy for describing the quality of services which are based on spoken dialogue systems (SDSs), and operated via a telephone interface.  ...  It is used to classify instrumentally or expert-derived dialogue and system measures, as well as quality features perceived by the user of the service.  ...  The quality of interactions with spoken dialogue systems is difficult to determine.  ...
