Abstract

Successful dialogue is based on collaborative efforts of the interactants to ensure mutual understanding. This paper presents work towards making conversational agents ‘attentive speakers’ that continuously attend to the communicative feedback given by their interlocutors and adapt their ongoing and subsequent communicative behaviour to their needs. A comprehensive conceptual and architectural model for this is proposed and first steps of its realisation are described. Results from a prototype implementation are presented.
