Sproat, Richard – NLP for augmentative and alternative communication in adults
The proposed project will develop a research program in the field of Augmentative and Alternative Communication. The program proposes to improve the throughput of AAC devices for conversation by modeling dialogue context for literate adult users. Specifically, we will use corpus-based techniques from question answering and chatter bots to select appropriate utterances in response to utterances from interlocutors.
