Lecture Room #2, General Research Building #8
This course is jointly taught by Prof. Toyoaki Nishida, Prof. Atsushi Nakazawa, and Prof. Yoshimasa Ohmoto.
Conversational interaction is considered to be a powerful communication means for intelligent actors, either natural or artificial, to interact each other to act as a collective intelligence. In this course, we study the mechanism of conversational interactions with verbal and nonverbal cues from computational points of view and discuss key issues in designing conversational systems that can interact with people in a conversational fashion.
