Bibliography for Michael L. Anderson (5671 words)
We offer a brief account of the biological origins of representation, a formal characterization of the guidance theory, some examples of its use, and show how the guidance theory handles some traditional problem cases for representation: the problems of error and of representation of fictional and abstract entities.
For this reason, we think that time spent understanding and implementing meta-dialog in natural language HCI systems will be well rewarded; the ability to engage in even simple meta-dialog can be used to fruitfully enhance the performance of interactive systems, even those having relatively limited speech recognition and language processing abilities.
