About this book

Introducing Spoken Dialogue Systems into Intelligent Environments outlines the formalisms of a novel knowledge-driven framework for spoken dialogue management and presents the implementation of a model-based Adaptive Spoken Dialogue Manager(ASDM) called OwlSpeak. The authors have identified three stakeholders that potentially influence the behavior of the ASDM: the user, the SDS, and a complex Intelligent Environment (IE) consisting of various devices, services, and task descriptions.

The theoretical foundation of a working ontology-based spoken dialogue description framework, the prototype implementation of the ASDM, and the evaluation activities that are presented as part of this book contribute to the ongoing spoken dialogue research by establishing the fertile ground of model-based adaptive spoken dialogue management.

This monograph is ideal for advanced undergraduate students, PhD students, and postdocs as well as academic and industrial researchers and developers in speech and multimodal interactive systems.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“In this book, the authors describe their approach to OwlSpeak, an adaptive spoken dialogue manager (ASDM). It is intended to be a spoken interface to intelligent environments in the context of real-life situations. … we found the book very valuable in providing an overview of the fundamental challenges with SDSs, approaches toward the realization of such systems, and a framework for the evaluation of spoken dialogue managers.” (Franz Kurfess and Xiaoxi Luo, Computing Reviews, June, 2013)
