A Natural Language Tutorial Dialogue System for Physics

Pamela W. Jordan, Maxim Makatchev, Umarani Pappuswamy, Kurt VanLehn, Patricia Albacete

We describe the Why2-Atlas intelligent tutoring system for qualitative physics that interacts with students via natural language dialogue. We focus on the issue of analyzing and responding to multi-sentential explanations. We explore approaches for achieving a deeper understanding of these explanations and dialogue management approaches and strategies for providing appropriate feedback on them.
