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


This paper describes a user evaluation of the text output from the M-PIRO (Multilingual Personalised Information Objects) system, which dynamically generates descriptions of exhibits for a virtual museum. We show that subjects performed significantly better in a factual recall test when the descriptions included more sophisticated text structuring modules. The subjects also judged the structured texts to be more interesting and readable, and felt that they had learned more from them.
