Summary:
Explanation and Interaction describes the problems and issues involved in generating interactive user-sensitive explanations. It presents a particular computational system that generates tutorial, interactive explanations of how simple electronic circuits work. Moreover, the approaches and ideas in the book can be applied to a wide range of computer applications in which complex explanations are provided, such as

It presents a particular computational system that generates tutorial, interactive explanations of how simple electronic circuits work. Moreover, the approaches and ideas in the book can be applied to a wide range of computer applications in which complex explanations are provided, such as documentation, advisory, and expert systems. The approach presented is based on an analysis of human explanatory discourse; simple techniques for text planning, dialogue management, and user modeling are developed and used in the system."@en ;
   schema:description "Cawsey describes in detail the issues involved in text planning, dialogue management, and user modeling, and presents a particular approach in enough detail that practical systems may be developed based on the ideas. Because the book addresses a wide range of issues in a single system, it is appropriate as a general introduction to discourse processing and user-adapted interaction.
