Tactical Questioning Character : Amani

Tactical Questioning dialogues are those in which small-unit military personnel, usually on patrol, hold conversations with individuals to produce information of military value (Army 2006). Building Tactical Questioning characters that can play the role of a person being questioned has been an on-going project at Institute for Creative Technologies. The simulation training environment can be used to train military personnel in how to conduct such dialogues. Tactical Questioning dialogues are mainly question-answering dialogues, but also have the ability to model simple negotiations over when to release certain sensitive information.

One such character is Amani. She has witnessed a recent shooting in the marketplace. The trainee is to question her to find out the identity, location and description of the shooter.
