A more naturalistic interaction: using back-channeling in smart-speakers to indicate active listening

In this project, we aim to extend the capabilities of smart-speakers (such as Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Siri, etc.) to support more engaging interactions with their users. Specifically, we would like to make the future of smart-speakers more conversational. One of the key aspects in developing a conversation is to be an active listener; showing interest in the speaker and allowing them to extend their turn in talk. In this study we investigate how smart-speakers can become better listeners by incorporating some of the human-human conversational features of active listening. Our question is, how can smart-speakers extend the users' turn in talk by being better listeners?
