About this book

Proactive Spoken Dialogue Interaction in Multi-Party Environments describes spoken dialogue systems that act as independent dialogue partners in the conversation with and between users. The resulting novel characteristics such as proactiveness and multi-party capabilities pose new challenges on the dialogue management component of such a system and require the use and administration of an extensive dialogue history. In order to assist the proactive spoken dialogue systems development, a comprehensive data collection seems mandatory and may be performed in a Wizard-of-Oz environment. Such an environment builds also the appropriate basis for an extensive usability and acceptance evaluation.

Proactive Spoken Dialogue Interaction in Multi-Party Environments is a useful reference for students and researchers in speech processing.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This work contains the results that were obtained for a novel type of spoken-language dialogue system. … The main goal of the research project described in the book was to develop a dialogue system that appears as an independent dialogue partner in the interaction with two persons. … The book is excellent from a didactical point of view, too. It is recommended to researchers, teachers and students.” (E. Kostolansky, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1206, 2011)
