Culinary Interview Dialog Corpus (CIDC)

CIDC is an interview dialogue corpus in the culinary domain in which interviewers play an active role to elicit culinary knowledge from the cooking expert. Collected with a video conferencing tool, the corpus contains 308 dialogues (each about 10~15 minutes.) To understand the impact of the interlocutors’ skill level, we divide the experts into “professionals” and “enthusiasts” and the interviewers into “skilled interviewers” and “unskilled interviewers.” The collection of this corpus is supported by a project JPNP20006, commissioned by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO).

Among the collected dialogues, the first 20 dialogues (Interview_1~Interview_20) are preliminary collection collected with tentative condition settings at first. Based on the analysis of the preliminary collection, the final conditions were set and the main collection was collected.
