Abstract:

This workshop was organized to discuss some critical issues in the design of interactive natural language system that have not received the careful attention that they deserve. Two of the session had as their topics, issues we felt are primary forcing functions in the design of interactive systems capable of responding to, and responding in, natural language. These forcing functions involve the purpose of the interaction, the social conventions assumed by each participant, and the characteristics of the channel through which interaction takes place. The topic of the third session was the future of natural language communication with machines.
