Large Language Models and Laughter: Is it Still the Best Medicine?

Abstract:
In this talk we present our study of laughter in interactions between humans and socially interactive agents (SIAs). Our study involved manipulating negotiative dialogue between individuals and the Furhat robot. Furhat’s dialogue was generated by a large language model, and our pilot experiment focused on manipulating the robot’s response to the user’s laughter through an experimental intervention.
