Use of Role-play Simulations and Computationally Intelligent Dialogue Interventions in Research and Education
A methodology for investigating the effects of different types of interactions in teams using an experimental approach is described. Teams engage in a role-play simulation involving project management, decision-making, etc. Statistically significant results can be achieved with sufficient teams involved. A computationally intelligent system intervenes in the dialogue of the treatment group. Performance can be assessed through quantitative outcome measures related to the specific simulation (e.g., profitability), surveys completed by participants, or qualitative evaluations of group conversations. The computationally intelligent system may also be used as a training tool. Research considerations and a brief survey of results are discussed.
