Abstract

Based on previous studies on the co-occurrence between the types of laughter and conversation contents, this paper uses the attention mechanism to further study the types of laughter and the specific wording in the conversation. We assume that the types of laughter also co-occurs with specific words, as well as a certain pause, in the conversation. We have established a neural network learning model based on the attention mechanism. The results of our model show that certain words in the conversation are related to specific types of laughter.
