David Traum: “Advanced Dialogue Models for 4Multi Negotiation”

June 20, 2012 | Mountainview, CA

Speaker: David Traum
Host: Honda Research Institute

Abstract: In this talk, I will present the dialogue model for virtual human negotiation, developed through a series of projects at the Institute for Creative Technologies. The models support Multi-party, multi-modal dialogues, in which humans and virtual agents negotiate on multiple issues, and the agents engage in multiple strategies throughout the course of the interaction. I will focus special attention on recent work in progress on incremental dialogue interpretation, conversational participant modeling, and models of secrecy-reasoning.
