Automated visual discourse synthesis

Michelle X. Zhou
1998 CHI 98 conference summary on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '98  
In particular, we identify various knowledge sources and determine effective knowledge representation paradigms in constructing the knowledge base.  ...  In other words, any automated graphics generation system must contain a knowledge base, an inference engine, a visual realizer and an interaction handler.  ...  approaches so that we can present an interruptible visual discourse.  ...

Cinematic Visual Discourse: Representation, Generation, and Evaluation

Arnav Jhala, R Michael Young
2010 IEEE Transactions on Computational Intelligence and AI in Games  
In this paper, we present the design, implementation, and evaluation of an end-to-end camera planning system called Darshak.  ...  Darshak automatically constructs cinematic narrative discourse of a given story in a 3-D virtual environment.  ...  In the QUEST model [6] , stories are represented as conceptual graph structures containing concept nodes and connective arcs.  ...

Modelling Structures for Situated Discourse

Nicholas Asher, Julie Hunter, Kate Thompson
2020 Dialogue and Discourse  
Discourse Representation Theory (SDRT; Asher & Lascarides,2003).  ...  This paper describes a corpus of situated multiparty chats developed for the STAC project (Strategic Conversation, ERC grant n. 269427). and annotated for discourse structure in the style of Segmented  ...  Each one of these has, or at least can give rise to, an annotation model for discourse structure, and all of the theories agree on how the process of annotation for discourse structure should be approached  ...

Towards a Categorical Theory of Creativity for Music, Discourse, and Cognition [chapter]

Moreno Andreatta, Andrée Ehresmann, René Guitart, Guerino Mazzola
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The model, which is applied to musical creativity, discourse theory, and cognition, suggests the relevance of the notion of "colimit" as a unifying construction in the three domains as well as the central  ...  role played by the Yoneda Lemma in the categorical formalization of creative processes.  ...  in the discourse.  ...

Discourse Centric Learning Analytics: Mapping the Terrain

Simon Knight, Karen Littleton
2015 Journal of Learning Analytics  
There is an increasing interest in developing learning analytic techniques for the analysis, and support of, high-quality learning discourse.  ...  It is our claim that DCLA provides the opportunity to explore the ways in which discourse of various forms both resources and evidences learning; the ways in which small and large groups, and individuals  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We are grateful to Simon Buckingham Shum for feedback on earlier drafts, and to the anonymous reviewers whose comments helped to improve this version.  ...

Ralf Klamma, Marc Spaniol, Matthias Jarke
2005 Informing Science  
We present a solution for this issue, using the MECCA discourse support system for a movie research community as an example.  ...  The success of collaborative hypermedia systems in business, engineering, or humanities heavily depends on the discursive nature of knowledge creation.  ...  programme of the EC through the Network of Excellence in Professional Learning (PRO-LEARN) IST-2003-507310.  ...

Jiangming Liu, Shay B. Cohen, Mirella Lapata, Johan Bos
2021 Computational Linguistics  
We consider the task of cross-lingual semantic parsing in the style of Discourse Representation Theory (DRT) where knowledge from annotated corpora in a resource-rich language is transferred via bitext  ...  We introduce Universal Discourse Representation Theory (UDRT), a variant of DRT that explicitly anchors semantic representations to tokens in the linguistic input.  ...  This work was partly funded by the NWO-VICI grant "Lost in Translation -Found in Meaning" (288-89-003).

Approaches to natural language discourse processing

Paul Mc Kevitt, Derek Partridge, Yorick Wilks
1992 Artificial Intelligence Review  
Most approaches stress one theme over all the others. Their future lies in the integration of components of all approaches.  ...  A theory of intention analysis solves, in part, the problem of natural-language dialogue processing.  ...  Intention sequences in natural-language dialogue can be represented by what we call intention graphs.  ...

Theory, Methods, and Expressive Potential of Discourse Studies in Science Education

Gregory J. Kelly
2021 Research in Science Education  
Looking across the eleven articles in this special issue, a number of questions surface; one primary question asks: What does this collection contribute as a whole in terms of theories of discourse, research  ...  The eleven articles spanning nations, student grade levels, and interactional contexts frame a set of topics providing insights into theory-methods relationships of discourse studies in education.  ...  Graphs of semantic density over time (semantic waves) represent in a visual manner the degree of complexity found in the discourse.  ...

Question Generation from Concept Maps

Andrew Olney, Arthur Graesser, Natalie Person
2012 Dialogue and Discourse  
The approach is based on previous psychological theories that hypothesize questions are generated from a knowledge representation modeled as a concept map.  ...  In this paper we present a question generation approach suitable for tutorial dialogues.  ...  In the first step, conceptual graphs are created for a particular domain.  ...

Discourse structures in medical reports—Watch out! The generation of referentially coherent and valid text knowledge bases in the medSYNDIKATE system
