*** Post-Doctoral Research Associate: Argumentation corpora and dialogue generation strategies ***
Application deadline: 15 September 2020
We are looking for a Research Associate to work on the "Opening Up Minds: Engaging Dialogue Generated from Argument Maps" project (http://mcs.open.ac.uk/pp2464/Opening_Up_Minds/). This 2-year EPSRC-funded project will start in January 2021. It brings together researchers from the Open University (lead organisation), the University of Cambridge, the University of Sheffield and Toshiba Research Europe.
The successful candidate will be based in the NLP & AI group of the Open University's School of Computing and Communications and supervised by Dr. Paul Piwek. The overall aim of the project is to develop a dialogue system interface to existing databases of arguments surrounding controversial topics such as 'Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union?' and 'Should all humans be vegan?'.
The work package led by the Open University will focus on creating a parallel annotated corpus of multi-party dialogues and argument maps, and development of language generation templates and hybrid psychology-based dialogue strategies.
