12. Chiba University Japanese Map Task Dialogue Corpus (MapTask)

Producer, Project

The Japanese MapTask Corpus Project by Chiba University.

Contents

Task-oriented dialogues using maps, in which two speakers participate, an instruction-giver who has a map with a route and an instruction-follower who has a map without a route. The giver instructs the follower verbally to reconstruct the giver's route on the follower's map.

Speaker

64 speakers (32 males and 32 females) were recruited by pairs, that is, those who know each other well. Then, 16 quadruples were made up of two pairs so that the subjects were familiar within the pair but not across the pairs.

There are 128 dialogues in total of about 23 hours.
