Modelling “but” in Task-Oriented Dialogue
University of Edinburgh.
2003 (English)In: Lecture Notes in Computer Science, ISSN 0302-9743, E-ISSN 1611-3349, Vol. 2680, 314-327 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

We determine criteria for modelling plan-based “but” in task-oriented dialogue (TOD), following work by Lagerwerf [5] and focusing on cases in which it signals denial of expectation (DofE) and concession, to which end we propose a novel treatment of concession in TOD. We present initial considerations for an algorithm to address plan-based “but” in an Information State (IS) model of dialogue that predicts which interpretations (DofE and/or concessive) to generate. We motivate this work by showing how it updates beliefs in the PTT [6] model of dialogue and can be used to facilitate recognition of planning mismatches and more generally, discourse understanding and natural language generation (NLG).
