The proliferation of Intelligent Personal Assistants (IPAs) (e.g. Siri and Alexa) is rising dramatically (24% of US households own smart speakers, 81% of US citizens own smartphones). However, speaking to these assistants currently falls short of conversational dialogue instead of offering interactions that are constrained and task-oriented. Human-like conversational ability will be important in supporting long-term human-agent interaction, such as for Virtual Companions.
