How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
We present a conversational management act (CMA) annotation schema for one-to-one tutorial dialogue sessions where a tutor uses an analogy to teach a student a concept. CMAs are more fine-grained sub-utterance acts compared to traditional dialogue act markup. The schema achieves an inter-annotator agreement (IAA) Cohen Kappa score of at least 0.66...
We introduce an annotation scheme and corpus study to investigate the use of base and target components of analogies in tutorial dialogues. We present the development of the scheme and test its final form on a corpus of one-to-one tutorial dialogues on computer science , for which we achieve over 0.77 multi-rater inter-annotator agreement. We then...
While Voice User Interfaces (VUI) are becoming increasingly embedded into everyday life, their ability to tailor their output to individual users is limited. Research in VUIs has explored the use of static user models to encode general preferences; and, separately, dynamic models of dialogue context or short-term common ground have been used to inf...
