Abstract / Description of output

We look at the effect of using high level discourse knowledge in dialogue act type detection. We also look at ways this knowledge can be used for improving language modelling and intonation modelling of utterance types. We find a significant improvement of predictability of dialogue models using higher level discourse knowledge.
