Integrating laughter into spoken dialogue systems: preliminary analysis and suggested programme

Vladislav Maraev, Chiara Mazzocconi, Christine Howes, Jonathan Ginzburg


This paper presents an exploratory scheme, which aims at investigating perceptual features that characterise laughables (the arguments laughter is related to) in dialogue context. We present the results of a preliminary study and sketch an updated questionnaire on laughables types and laughter functions aimed to be used for Amazon Mechanical Turk experiments. Furthermore we present preliminary programme for integrating laughter into spoken dialogue systems.
