Kristiina Jokinen’s Talk @ LPL

Engagement and Affects in WikiTalk Interactions

September 30th, 14h

LPL Conference Room (5 avenue Pasteur)
Kristiina Jokinen
University of Helsinki (Finland)
University of Tartu (Estonia)

In this talk I will talk about my work related to interaction modelling,
and discuss issues related to engagement in WikiTalk, a robot application
that enables the user to query Wikipedia via the Nao robot. The robot
supports open-domain conversations using Wikipedia as a knowledge source.
To manage smooth interaction, it is important to capture the userís
emotional and attentional state. I will focus on the challenges related
to the topic structure, new information, and tracking the user’s interest
level, engagement, and emotional state in interaction.
