  • Miehle, Juliana; Bagci, Ilker; Minker, Wolfgang; Ultes, Stefan (Springer, 2017)
    In this work, we present the development and evaluation of a social companion and conversation partner for the special user group of elderly.With the aim of designing a user-adaptive system, we responded to the desires of ...
  • Pragst, Louisa; Ultes, Stefan; Kraus, Matthias; Minker, Wolfgang (University of Gothenburg, 2015)
    The goal of the EU-funded KRISTINA project is to help migrants in European countries get information about their resident country’s health care system by the means of a socially competent dialogue system. This system has ...
  • Pragst, Louisa; Miehle, Juliana; Ultes, Stefan; Minker, Wolfgang (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2016)
    In task-oriented dialogues, there is often only one right answer the system can give. However, a lack of variation can seem repetitive and unnatural. Humans change the way they express something, e.g. by being more or less ...
  • Yoshino, Koichiro; Miehle, Juliana; Pragst, Louisa; Ultes, Stefan; Nakamura, Satoshi; Minker, Wolfgang (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2016)
    In this work, we investigate whether the cultural idiosyncrasies found in human human interaction may be transferred to human-computer interaction. With the aim of designing a culture-sensitive dialogue system, we designed ...
  • Wanner, Leo; André, Elisabeth; Blat, Josep; Dasiopoulou, Stamatia; Farrús, Mireia; Fraga, Thiago; Kamateri, Eleni; Lingenfelser, Florian; Llorach, Gerard; Martínez, Oriol; Meditskos, Georgios; Mille, Simon; Minker, Wolfgang; Pragst, Louisa; Schiller, Dominik; Stam, Andries; Stellingwerff, Ludo; Sukno, Federico Mateo; Vieru, Bianca; Vrochidis, Stefanos (Elsevier, 2017)
    We present work in progress on an intelligent embodied conversation agent that is supposed to act as a social companion with linguistic and emotional competence in the context of basic and health care. The core of the agent ...
  • Pragst, Louisa; Minker, Wolfgang; Ultes, Stefan (© Springer The final publication is available at Springer via http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/978-3-319-92108-2_20, 2017)
    In this paper, we investigate the applicability of soft changes to the system behaviour, namely changing the amount of elaborateness and indirectness displayed. To this end, we examine the impact of elaborateness and ...
  • Rach, Niklas; Minker, Wolfgang; Ultes, Stefan (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2017)
    For estimating the Interaction Quality (IQ) in Spoken Dialogue Systems (SDS), the dialogue history is of significant importance. Previous works included this information manually in the form of precomputed temporal features ...
  • Wanner, Leo; André, Elisabeth; Blat, Josep; Dasiopoulou, Stamatia; Farrús, Mireia; Kamateri, Eleni; Lingenfelser, Florian; Llorach, Gerard; Martínez, Oriol; Meditskos, Georgios; Mille, Simon; Minker, Wolfgang; Pragst, Louisa; Schiller, Dominik; Stam, Andries; Stellingwerff, Ludo; Sukno, Federico Mateo; Vieru, Bianca; Vrochidis, Stefanos (Springer, 2017)
    We present an intelligent embodied conversation agent with linguistic, social and emotional competence. Unlike the vast majority of the state-of-the-art conversation agents, the proposed agent is constructed around an ...
  • Pragst, Louisa; Ultes, Stefan; Minker, Wolfgang (Springer, 2016)
    Getting a good estimation of the Interaction Quality (IQ) of a spoken dialogue helps to increase the user satisfaction as the dialogue strategy may be adapted accordingly. Therefore, some research has already been conducted ...
  • Wanner, Leo; Blat, Josep; Dasiopoulou, Stamatia; Domínguez Bajo, Mónica; Llorach, Gerard; Mille, Simon; Sukno, Federico Mateo; Kamateri, Eleni; Kompatsiaris, Ioannis; Vrochidis, Stefanos; André, Elisabeth; Lingenfelser, Florian; Mehlmann, Gregor; Stam, Andries; Stellingwerff, Ludo; Lamel, Lori; Vieru, Bianca; Minker, Wolfgang; Pragst, Louisa; Ultes, Stefan (ACM Association for Computer Machinery, 2016)
    We present work in progress on an intelligent embodied conversation agent in the basic care and healthcare domain. In contrast to most of the existing agents, the presented agent is aimed to have linguistic cultural, social ...
  • Rach, Niklas; Minker, Wolfgang; Wanner, Leo (CEUR Workshop Proceedings, 2017)
    In this work we propose a scheme for an Argumentative Dialogue System that allows a user to discuss a certain topic with a virtual agent using natural language. Starting from an agent vs agent case, we address the optimization ...
