My personal pronoun is I, Robot

Potential Challenges in Human - Robot Communication

Please note that this FTL seminar will take place in NT hus, room 1016 (møterom)

Abstract

The nature of individual denoting expressions, in specific personal 
pronouns, has been widely discussed in the field of linguistics, but 
still poses challenges in artificial speech comprehension. In this talk, 
I will give an overview of how personal pronoun resolution is approached 
in different scholarly fields (e.g. linguistics, NLP and cognitive 
studies) and present my PhD research project that explores the use of 
personal pronouns in task-specific speech interactions and in narrative 
descriptions in human-robot-communication.
