Spoken Interfaces and Dialogue Processing

By Alexander Rudnickey

Dialogue systems mostly involve one human talking to one machine. What about interaction between the members of a human-robot team? This project focuses on two specific research issues: The management of multi-participant dialogues (touching on issues such as turn-taking) and the development of grounding strategies that allow humans and robots to agree on mutually understandable descriptions of objects and actions in the context of a treasure hunt.
