Publication/Patent Number: US10416957B2
Publication date: 2019-09-17
Application number: 15/883,240
Filing date: 2018-01-30
Abstract: A voice interaction apparatus incudes voice recognition means for recognizing a voice of a user, response-sentence generation means for generating a response sentence to the voice of the user based on the recognized voice, filler generation means for generating a filler word to be inserted in a conversation, output means for outputting the generated response sentence and the generated filler word, and classification means for classifying the generated response sentence into one of predetermined speech patterns indicating predefined speech types. When the output means outputs, after the user utters a voice subsequent to the first response sentence, the filler word and outputs a second response sentence, the classification means classifies the first response sentence into one of the speech patterns, and the filler generation means generates the filler word based on the speech pattern into which the first response sentence has been classified. A voice interaction apparatus incudes voice recognition means for recognizing a voice of a user, response-sentence generation means for generating a response sentence to the voice of the user based on the recognized voice, filler generation means for generating a filler word to ...more ...less

Abstract: PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To solve the problem that, it may not be clearly determined from a rhythm analyzed from a speech production of a user whether a next speed production should be performed by a robot or a speed production of the user should be awaited and, in such a case, silence may be continued between both the robot and the user or speech productions of both the robot and the user are overlapped, thereby preventing the user from enjoying a smooth conversation.SOLUTION: A voice interaction device comprises: an estimation unit for estimating whether a next user speech production should be awaited or a speech production from the device itself should be executed based on a user speech production inputted by an input unit; and a response control unit for making a response by executing at least either filler output that causes an output unit to output a filler of a filler speech production non-associated with an interaction content or a nodding action that moves a dummy head forwards and backwards in a case where the estimation unit can estimate neither that the user speech production should be awaited nor that the speech production from the device itself should be executed.SELECTED DRAWING: Figure 3 PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To solve the problem that, it may not be clearly determined from a rhythm analyzed from a speech production of a user whether a next speed production should be performed by a robot or a speed production of the user should be awaited and, in such a case ...more ...less
