Conversation quantisation for conversational knowledge process
by Toyoaki Nishida
International Journal of Computational Science and Engineering (IJCSE), Vol. 3, No. 2, 2007

Abstract: I present an approach on conversational knowledge process based on conversation quantisation, which is a technique of approximating a continuous flow of conversation by a series of conversation quanta that represent points of the discourse. Conversation quantisation allows for implementing a rather robust conversation system by basing it on the large amount of conversational quanta collected from the real world. I describe techniques for extracting conversation quanta from the real-world conversation, spatially accumulating them for visual manipulation, and using conversation quanta to drive embodied conversational agents.
