We report about design and characteristics of the LAST MINUTE corpus. The recordings in this data collection are taken from a WOZ experiment that allows to investigate how users interact with a companion system in a mundane situation with the need for planning, re-planning and strategy change. The resulting corpus is distinguished with respect to aspects of(More)
The use of stable tracers assayed by x-ray fluorescent excitation analysis has proven advantageous over other stable or radioisotopic techniques in a number of clinical and investigative situations. An automated fluorescent excitation analysis system for medical application has developed. Its design parameters and performance are described.
The understanding of the molecular mechanism of cell-to-cell communication is fundamental for system biology. Up to now, the main objectives of bioinformatics have been reconstruction, modeling and analysis of metabolic, regulatory and signaling processes, based on data generated from high-throughput technologies. Cell-to-cell communication or quorum(More)
The LAST MINUTE corpus comprises multimodal recordings (e.g. video, audio, transcripts) from WOZ interactions in a mundane planning task (Rösner et al., 2011). It is one of the largest corpora with naturalistic data currently available. In this paper we report about first results from attempts to automatically and manually analyze the different modes with(More)
This paper addresses issues of automatically detecting significant dialog events (SDEs) in naturalistic HCI, and of deducing trait-specific conclusions relevant for the design of spoken dialog systems. We perform our investigations on the multimodal LAST MINUTE corpus with records from naturalistic interactions. First, we used textual transcripts to analyse(More)
The LAST MINUTE corpus comprises records and transcripts of naturalistic problem solving dialogs between N = 130 subjects and a companion system simulated in a Wizard of Oz experiment. Our goal is to detect dialog situations where subjects might break up the dialog with the system which might happen when the subject is unsuccessful. We present a dialog act(More)
