Non-humorous use of laughter in spoken dialogue systems

Abstract:
In this paper we argue that laughter, an ambiguous yet ubiquitous signal in everyday interactions, can act as an important feature for task-oriented dialogue systems. We show which components of a dialogue system should be affected and modified, and more specifically how particular types of laughter can be accounted for in a dialogue manager as instances of short answers, feedbacks and vocalisations accompanying them.
