Abstract

In this paper, we introduce a corpus comprising requests for objects in physical spaces, and responses given by people to these requests. We generated two datasets based on this corpus: A manually-tagged dataset, and a dataset which includes features that are automatically extracted from the output of a Spoken Language Understanding module. These datasets are used in a classification-based approach for generating responses to spoken requests. Our results show that, surprisingly, classifiers trained on the second dataset outperform those trained on the first, and produce acceptable levels of performance.
