Towards Multi-Modal Conversational Information Seeking
Proceedings of the 44th International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval
Recent research on conversational information seeking (CIS) mostly focuses on uni-modal interactions and information items. This perspective paper highlights the importance of moving towards developing and evaluating multi-modal conversational information seeking (MMCIS) systems as they enable us to leverage richer context, overcome errors, and increase accessibility. We bridge the gap between the multi-modal and CIS research and provide a formal definition for MMCIS. We discuss potentialdoi:10.1145/3404835.3462806 fatcat:7rr7vbb4hzd2tcx2fmrx6ya42q
