An Investigation of Digital Reference Interviews: A Dialogue Act Approach.
- Computer Science
An investigation of the information-seeking behavior of digital reference services through analysis of discourse semantics, called dialogue acts, and experimentation of automatic identification of dialogue acts using machine-learning techniques produce promising results and demonstrate the possibility of practical applications of the DA analysis for further research across disciplines.
Dialogue Acts Annotation for NICT Kyoto Tour Dialogue Corpus to Construct Statistical Dialogue Systems
- Computer ScienceLREC
A taxonomy of dialogue act (DA) annotation that can describe two aspects of an utterance: the communicative function (SA), and the semantic content of the utterance is outlined.
Dialogue Simulation and Context Dynamics for Dialogue Management
- Computer ScienceNODALIDA
In this paper we describe DISCUS, a research tool for developing a context model and update algorithm for dialogue management. The model builds on Dynamic Interpretation Theory (DIT), in which…
Hybrid discourse modeling and summarization for a speech-to-speech translation system
- Computer Science
This thesis describes the result of several years of research focusing on a small part of natural language processing: a robust approach to dialogue modeling and discourse processing that produces summaries in any language deployed by the VerbMobil system.
The Semantics of Dialogue Acts
An update semantic for dialogue acts is presented, defined in terms of combinations of very simple 'elementary update functions', which allows fine-grained distinctions to be made between related types of dialogue acts, and relations like entailment and exclusion between dialogue acts to be established.
Towards Multimodal Content Representation
- Computer ScienceArXiv
The present document is intended to support the discussion on multimodal content representation, its possible objectives and basic constraints, and how the definition of a generic representation framework for multimodals content representation may be approached.
A dialogue act based model for context updating
In this paper we describe a context update model that has been implemented in a dialogue manager. The model is based on the assumptions that utterances in a dialogue can be represented in terms of…
Evaluating Combinations of Dialogue Acts for Generation
- Computer ScienceSIGDIAL
An approach to dialogue act generation that reflects the multidimensionality of communication is discussed, which requires an additional process of evaluating candidates, resulting in definitive combinations of dialogue acts to be generated.
The DIAMOND project
The DIAMOND project aims to develop formal and computational models of natural human-human and human-computer dialogue by designing and implementation of a sophisticated dialogue manager component that decides what to do next in a dialogue.
Research On Dialog Act Annotation In Chinese Daily Conversation
- Computer Science
A new dialog act annotation scheme for Chinese daily conversation is designed, where the core function subclasses for the subjective and objective statement and the positive and negative response are introduced to enhance the DA descriptive ability.

Context Representation for Dialogue Management
- Computer ScienceCONTEXT
This paper proposes a way to handle the representation of the context information needed to support intelligent dialogue management in interactive speech systems, and shows how a dialogue manager can operate on elements of context information that may be represented in different formalisms.
