Understanding Referring Expressions in Situated Language Some Challenges for Real-World Agents

Abstract

Past research efforts to construct embodied conversational agents have focused on features of multi-channel communication that are made possible by embodiment. This paper draws attention instead to 4 crucial aspects of the linguistic forms that an embodied agent will encounter, and that language understanding agents must master in order to converse and collaborate with humans in the real world. If language technology is to be ready to support conversation in the copresent technologies that will soon arrive, these deficiencies in linguistic competence must be addressed now.
