Ron Artstein, Sudeep Gandhe, Anton Leuski and David Traum: “Field Testing of an Interactive Question-Answering Character”

May 28, 2008 | Marrakech, Morocco

Speaker: Ron Artstein, Sudeep Gandhe, Anton Leuski and David Traum
Host: Language Resources and Evaluation Conference (LREC)

We tested a life-size embodied question-answering character at a convention where he responded to questions from the audience. The character’s responses were then rated for coherence. The ratings, combined with speech transcripts, speech recognition results and the character’s responses, allowed us to identify where the character needs to improve, namely in speech recognition and providing off-topic responses.
