Natural Language Programming: How Laypersons Teach New Functions to Robots

Even though intelligent systems such as Siri or Google Assistant are enjoyable (and useful) dialog partners, users can only access predefined functionality. Enabling end-users to extend the functionality of intelligent systems will be the next big thing. To promote research in this area we carried out an empirical study on how laypersons teach robots new functions by means of natural language instructions. The result is a labeled corpus consisting of 3168 submissions given by 870 subjects.
