We introduce the Microsoft Information-Seeking Conversation data (MISC), a set of recordings of information-seeking conversations between human “seekers” and “intermediaries”. MISC includes audio and video signals; transcripts of conversation; affectual and physiological signals; recordings of search and other computer use; and post-task surveys on emotion, success, and effort.
