Recognizing Digressive Questions

Susan Haller

The Interactive Discourse Planner is designed to plan text to describe and/or justify a domain plan interactively. The system I have designed and implemented uses questions from a user to recognize how to extend its own text plan in a way that both satisfies the user and achieves its own discourse goal. In the process, IDP can detect questions from the user that initiate a digression. As a testbed for my model, IDP plans text to discuss driving routes.
