Problem-Sensitive Response Generation in Human-Robot Dialogs

Petra Gieselmann, Mari Ostendorf
2007 SIGDIAL Conferences  
Problem indicators drive an error/help state machine, which augments the dialog state and is used in tailoring response generation.  ...  We develop a new mechanism to detect and respond to miscommunications in human-robot dialogs, distinguishing between computer misunderstandings vs. human inexperience.  ...  To deal with such problems, variables indicative of different types of errors are tracked, based on analyses of the recognized user utterance.  ...
