Abstract [en]

The paper presents a multimodal conversational interaction system for the Nao humanoid robot. The system was developed at the 8th International Summer Workshop on Multimodal Interfaces, Metz, 2012. We implemented WikiTalk, an existing spoken dialogue system for open-domain conversations, on Nao. This greatly extended the robot's interaction capabilities by enabling Nao to talk about an unlimited range of topics. In addition to speech interaction, we developed a wide range of multimodal interactive behaviours by the robot, including face-tracking, nodding, communicative gesturing, proximity detection and tactile interrupts. We made video recordings of user interactions and used questionnaires to evaluate the system. We further extended the robot's capabilities by linking Nao with Kinect.
