Characterizing Dialogue Plausibility by Explanation Phase Space

Simulating explanation behavior of human agents, meta explanation, visualization


Comparative analysis of the roles of explanation and meta-explanation is conducted assessing the validity of explanation exchanged between human agents. Meta explanation links the overall structure of a current scenario with that of previously learned scenarios of multi-agent interaction. Object-level explanation is based on a traditional machinery to handle argumentative structure of a dialogue, assessing the plausibility of individual claims. We define a ratio between object-level and meta-explanation as relative accuracy of plausibility assessment based on former and latter sources. We then introduce explanation phase space and observe that groups of scenarios can be characterized based on a specific ratio between object-level and meta-level explanations.
