Reference in Team Communication for Robot-Assisted Disaster Response: An Initial Analysis

Natalia Skachkova, Ivana Kruijff-Korbayova


Abstract
We analyze reference phenomena in a corpus of robot-assisted disaster response team communication. The annotation scheme we designed for this purpose distinguishes different types of entities, roles, reference units and relations. We focus particularly on mission-relevant objects, locations and actors and also annotate a rich set of reference links, including co-reference and various other kinds of relations. We explain the categories used in our annotation, present their distribution in the corpus and discuss challenging cases.
