Rhetorical Structure for Natural Language Generation in Dialogue

Amy Isard, Colin Matheson

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


Many traditional dialogue systems use simple predicates to send information between a Dialogue Manager and a Natural Language Generation system. We propose a flexible RST-style interface to allow for more complex structures and multimodal output, and we place the first stage of content planning under the control of the dialogue management system with access to a
system-wide information state.
