three sections of dialogue that illustrate
examples of where there is a failure to produce good 'human-like'
conversation between the judge and the program. Note that these
examples could come from Elbot (right hand side) or from the Judge
(local sent) or the hidden human (left hand side, remote sent). Justify
by saying for each where the failure occurred, whose (Elbot, judge, or
hidden human) failure it was, and why you chose this
C. Imagine you were a judge. Give five questions you might ask and explain why you think these would be good questions. Speculate on how you think the programs might answer these questions. Please do this BEFORE trying it out on Elbot.
D. Go to the Elbot site and try out your questions on Elbot. Record the answers and comment on their appropriateness and failings.
E. What are the relative strengths and
weaknesses of Elbot? Illustrate your answer with reference to
examples from the transcripts and your interaction.
