Evaluating Human-Computer Conversation in Companions

  title={Evaluating Human-Computer Conversation in Companions},
  author={David Benyon and Preben Hansen and Nick Webb},
We report on the first evaluation of the Companions project prototypes. We give preliminary results from our phase one evaluation, using known and well-understood dialogue metrics. We also give a first indication of the directions we plan to take to evaluate increasingly sophisticated conversational systems, using measures of coherence and appropriateness. 12
