Multimodal Interaction with Intelligent Agents
This seminar examines the coordination of linguistic (speech) and non-linguistic (gaze, gesture) information in multi-modal interaction.

Specifically, we consider evidence from both human-human studies and studies examining communication patterns in human-agent interaction (involving virtual agents as well as robots) in order to illuminate how information from different modalities is integrated. The issues discussed in this seminar include, for instance:
