Detecting Action Items in Meetings

Gabriel Murray, Steve Renals

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We present a method for detecting action items in spontaneous meeting speech. Using a supervised approach incorporating prosodic, lexical and structural features, we can classify such items with a high degree of accuracy. We also examine how well various feature subclasses can perform this task on their own.
