This project is
concerned with grounding in multi-modal computer-supported
collaboration. In particular, we concentrate on two issues: how
constructed visual/spatial references (drawing a diagram) are used
during grounding and the role of grounding mechanisms in problem
solving. The project will progress in three phases:
or adapt a multi-modal computer-supported collaborative system.
Use the system to study grounding behavior in computer-mediated
- Develop a human-computer
collaborative system, in which a computer program can collaborate with
a human, using mechanisms for grounding which are functionally equivalent to
those of human-human behavior, as observed in the previous phase.
