About this book

These proceedings presents the state-of-the-art in spoken dialog systems with applications in robotics, knowledge access and communication. It addresses specifically: 1. Dialog for interacting with smartphones; 2. Dialog for Open Domain knowledge access; 3. Dialog for robot interaction; 4. Mediated dialog (including crosslingual dialog involving Speech Translation); and,5. Dialog quality evaluation. These articles were presented at the IWSDS 2012 workshop.

Reviews

a) A book covering broad aspects of dialog systems is definitely needed.  This book does touch on many of important aspects/technologies and issues related to dialog systems.

b) The technical accuracy is correct and the manuscript contents will be easily understood by the research community. I think the community will find the book interesting and useful for improving state-of-the-art technology of spoken dialogue systems.

c) The manuscript addresses a highly relevant topic which is connecting the spoken dialog systems technology to real-life applications. The manuscript features contributions from recognized experts in the field. The editors have a long lasting experience in the area of spoken dialog systems research.

d) The material is factually accurate, very current, and very well presented. The breadth of topics makes for a comprehensive treatment of the subjects. The material reads very well and is adequately referenced.
