The paper describes experimental dialogue data collection activities, as well semantically annotated corpus creation undertaken within EU-funded METALOGUE project. The project aims to develop a dialogue system with flexible dialogue management to enable systems adaptive, reactive, interactive and proactive dialogue behaviour in setting goals, choosing(More)
In this paper we apply the information state update (ISU) machinery to tracking and understanding the argumentative behaviour of participants in a parliamentary debate in order to predict its outcome. We propose to use the ISU approach to model the arguments of the debaters and the support/attack links between them as part of the formal representations of a(More)
In this paper we propose the concept of Habitable Interfaces. This concept builds on values-based trust. We hypothesise that representations and interactions built on scientific metaphors and concepts and organised based on the knowledge within particular scientific domain will enable values-based trust. Habitable Interfaces may provide better information(More)
This paper discusses empirically grounded strategies for the generation of feedback acts by a dialogue system in a way that supports a natural communication style and therefore leads to higher user acceptance. User evaluation of an implemented prototype system shows that an appropriate strategy can be generated by rules that are based on an analysis of(More)
This paper presents a computational approach to modelling pragmatic and semantic aspects of multi-issue bargaining dialogues. The model accounts for actions that shape negotiation structure and actions that express negotiation strategies. The model also accepts a number of negotiation moves as specifications of the semantic content of the performed(More)
Intelligent multimodal interfaces can facilitate scientists in utilising available information resources. Combining scientific visualisations with interactive and intelligent tools can help create a “habitable” information space. Development of such tools remains largely iterative. We discuss an ongoing implementation of intelligent interactive(More)
