Turn Planning in CIRCSIM-Tutor

AAAI Conferences

Abstract* Turn planning is not well-studied in natural language dialogue systems. The current version of CIRCSIM-Tutor attempts to imitate human tutorial dialogue. It generates comprehensible conversation but sounds unnatural. We propose to add a turn planner to improve intra-tum coherence by overall planning of variable references, discourse markers, acknowledgments and softeners. This paper specifies the architecture of the turn planner, which we believe will improve the rhetorical structure in the CIRCSIM-Tutor domain to a reasonable level. Since the idea is not domain dependent, it is potentially applicable to most natural language dialogue systems, especially Socratic dialogue systems. Introduction CIRCSIM-Tutor is a natural language-based intelligent tutoring system in the domain of reflex control of blood pressure.
