I5-[DiaSpace]: Flexible Dialogue Control for Intuitive Spatial Communication

Project Summary

Natural and effective spatial communication requires the dynamic negotiation of spatial reference frames, spatial perspectives and discourse strategies. Speakers manage such negotiation by the fine-scale selection and alignment of linguistic forms sensitive to dialogue history, user-group defined norms and spatial context. Necessary negotiation mechanisms will be empirically derived, implemented within a dialogue system for natural interaction between users and artificial agents engaged in spatially-embedded tasks, and deployed in SFB/TR 8 projects for improved functionality and evaluation.

I5-[DiaSpace] combines parts of the work done in 2003-2006 in the two projects I1-[OntoSpace] and I3-[SharC]. Both projects still continue their work within the SFB/TR8. I1-[OntoSpace] is primarily dedicated to spatial and linguistic ontologies substantiated by results of language production experiments (which are now continued in I5-[DiaSpace]). I3-[SharC] focuses on shared interaction between humans and robots, which has resulted in the development of a dialogue system. The system is now being put to practical use and testing within I5-[DiaSpace].

Just like I1 and the former I3, I5-[DiaSpace] is a part of the interdisciplinary Transregional Collaborative Research Center on Spatial Cognition at the University of Bremen in Bremen, Germany. The Center was established by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) on 01 January 2003 at the Universities Bremen and Freiburg and is the 8th Transregional Special Research Project (SFB/TR8) funded by the DFG. |
