The present report describes the work carried out in the second project year
regarding Natural Multimodal Interaction. It summarises the Deliverable
D4.2: \Natural Multimodal Interaction Basic Adaptivity and Personalisa-
The formalism to implement dialogue strategies that was dened in the rst
year has been implemented to a great extend, and the functionality contained
in the year 1 prototype has been implemented in the new formalism to prove
the feasibility of the approach. On the natural language generation side, we
implemented basic adaptivity and personalisation, using the data contained
in the underlying knowledge source to adapt the conversational style, as well
as the content, to the current user.
Two studies concerning personalised interaction were conducted. The
rst concerns the relation of the child's disclosure depending on self-disclosure
of the robotic agent, while the seconds develops strategies how to react to
the child's behaviour patterns in using the timeline.
