About our events

Seminars are open to the public. The speakers are often external speakers with a talk that crosses disciplines. If you wish to get informed about our future seminars, please send an email to Edita Poljac.

In the tutorials, one or two iHub members − in their role of expert in a specific discipline (computer science, law, social science, philosophy) − give a tutorial to those interested. The tutorials are tailored closely to the knowledge needs or curiosity questions of fellow iHub-ers.

Brown bag sessions are internal presentations by iHub staff during lunch. The idea of these sessions is to discuss research in an informal setting while enjoying lunch.

Brown Bag Session

Politeness for Artificial Conversational Agents: Computational Modelling and Human Expectations

Politeness is a linguistic mechanism fundamental to ‘tactful’ social interaction. It is unclear, however, whether and how the use of polite language transfers to interactions with artificial conversational agents such as voice assistants or social robots. I will talk about our research on computational models of politeness for conversational agents as well as our studies on differences in influences on and expectations of politeness in human and human-agent interaction.
