2008 (English)In: Perception In Multimodal Dialogue Systems, Proceedings / [ed] Andre, E; Dybkjaer, L; Minker, W; Neumann, H; Pieraccini, R; Weber, M, 2008, Vol. 5078, 252-255 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
There are compelling reasons to endow dialogue systems with human-like conversational abilities, which require modelling of aspects of human behaviour. This paper examines the value of using human behaviour as a target for system behaviour through a study making use of a simulation method. Two versions of system behaviour are compared: a replica of a human speaker's behaviour and a constrained version with less variability. The version based on human behaviour is rated more human-like, polite and intelligent.
