Abstract:This chapter describes the Vidiam project, which covered the development of a dialogue management system for multimodal question answering (QA) dialogues, as carried out in the IMIX project. The approach followed was datadriven, i.e., corpus-based. Since research in QA dialogue of multimodal information retrieval is still new, no suitable corpora were available to base a system on. This chapter reports on the collection and analysis of three QA dialogue corpora, involving textual follow-up utterances, multimodal follow-up questions, and speech dialogues. Based on the data, a dialogue act typology was created, which helps translate user utterances to practical interactive QA strategies.
