Discourse and Deliberation: Testing a Collaborative Strategy
9503018 | cmp-lg
A discourse strategy is a strategy for communicating with another agent. Designing effective dialogue systems requires designing agents that can choose among discourse strategies. We claim that the design of effective strategies must take cognitive factors into account, propose a new method for testing the hypothesized factors, and present experimental results on an effective strategy for supporting deliberation. The proposed method of computational dialogue simulation provides a new empirical basis for computational linguistics.
