Towards a Framework for Integrated Natural Language Processing Architectures for Social Robots

Matthias Scheutz, Kathleen Eberhard

Abstract

Current social robots lack the natural language capacities to be able to interact with humans in natural ways. In this paper, we present results from human experiments intended to isolate spoken interaction types in a search and rescue task and briefly discuss implications for NLP architectures for embodied situated agents.
