Dialogue Acts Annotation to Construct Dialogue Systems for Consulting
This chapter introduces a new corpus of consulting dialogues designed for training a dialogue manager that can handle consulting dialogues through spontaneous interactions from the tagged dialogue corpus. We have collected more than 150 hours of consulting dialogues in the tourist guidance domain. This chapter outlines our taxonomy of dialogue act (DA) annotation that can describe two aspects of an utterance: the communicative function (speech act (SA)), and the semantic content of the utterance. We provide an overview of the Kyoto tour guide dialogue corpus and a preliminary analysis using the DA tags.Wealso show a result of a preliminary experiment for SA tagging via Support Vec-tor Machines (SVMs). In addition, we mention the usage of our corpus for the spoken dialogue system that is being developed.
