Researchers, in Multimodal Interaction Systems, devote substantial effort to the integration of external stimulus and signal, to the internal representation of this information and to the response generation. Nevertheless, they focus less effort on how to integrate studies in Cognitive Psychology regarding the human interaction subject. Therefore, it becomes interesting to evaluate the assumption that a dialog model based on known human factors should outcome better perception of the interaction process by the users. This paper presents an experimental approach to implement multimodal interaction systems where the main innovative aspect is related to the dialogue managing, that is based on the working memory model proposed by Baddeley and Hitch. A computational model was proposed and two different prototypes were built. The obtained results were found to be positive and it indicates relevant flexibility aspects together with anencouraging feedback from users.

    Visually judging the sex of another can be achieved easily in most social encounters. When the signals that inform such judgements are weak (e.g. outdoors at night), observers tend to expect the presence of males–an expectation that may facilitate survival-critical decisions under...

    Researchers often assume that neutral affect is a relatively affectless state, in that it is low in intensity and requires little, if any, cognitive resources to be maintained. In contrast to these assumptions, we examined the hypothesis that reducing one's cognitive resources would lessen...

    Pictured objects and scenes can be understood in a brief glimpse, but there is a debate about whether they are first encoded at the basic level (e.g., banana), as proposed by Rosch et al. , Cognitive Psychology) , or at a superordinate level (e.g., fruit). The level at which we first categorize...

    The present study used event-related potentials (ERPs) to investigate the function of signals induced by cognitive conflict during the detection stage and the resolution stage of perceptual processing. The study used a combination of the Stroop task and an affective priming task to examine the...

    Social interactions with non-biological agents and interactions with technical devices have become increasingly important over the last years. Recent studies investigating the interactions between humans and non-human agents showed rather inconsistent results. While the joint Simon effect (cSE)...
