Thesis title

The role of rapport in human-conversational agent interaction:modeling conversation to improve task performance in human-agent interaction.

Short abstract

How to take into account the dynamics of conversation between humans within the NLG system of an embodied conversational agent? My thesis aims to produce a generator for language in conversation (including prosody, gestures, …) that relies on the theorical basis provided by psycho-linguistics and conversational analysis.
