Welcome and Introduction
What can I cook with these ingredients?" - Investigating and predicting information needs in the cooking domain
Trust in Human-Agent Collaboration
Alexander Frummett is lecturer and PhD student at the Department for Information Science in Regensburg, Germany. From 2013 to 2018 he studied General and Comparative Linguistics, Information Science (both Bachelor’s Degree) and Media Informatics (Master’s Degree) at the University of Regensburg.
As conversational search becomes more pervasive, it becomes increasingly important to understand the user's underlying information needs when they converse with such systems in diverse domains. For this reason, I analyse information needs that can occur in the cooking domain and investigate how they can be predicted and processed. This talk will present preliminary results of my research.
Sylvain Daronnat is a PhD student at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, UK. His work focuses on HCI with a specific interest on game-research and user studies. He previously obtained his MSc in NLP at the University of Grenoble Alpes where he also worked on Text Generation at the Airbus company.
Collaborative agents help human operators complete tasks more effectively. Trust is a prerequisite for this collaboration to work. In this talk, I am going to show how I used a simple game-like framework to study the evolution of trust, reliance, cognitive load and task performance when agents display different behaviours and levels of performance.
