Perspective taking, partner models and user behaviour in speech interface interaction

Speaker:  Benjamin Richard Cowan – Dublin, Ireland
Topic(s):  Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Natural language processing


Speech is now a mainstream interaction modality. Design is critical in supporting and informing our perceptions of speech agents as dialogue partners (i.e. our partner models), which are commonly used to inform perspective taking in dialogue. My talk will explore how speech interface design shapes our beliefs of a machine partner's abilities, the dimensions relevant to partner models, how partner models are crucial to consider in terms of speech interface interaction, and how this concept can help us begin to explain our language interactions with speech interfaces.
