From Queen's Communicator to QuADS: Object-Based Dialogue Systems at Queen's
In this seminar I will review some of the approaches used at Queen's
University Belfast for the development of object-based spoken dialogue
systems. We will look at the architecture of the Queen's Communicator
(QC) system and examine the successor to QC, ISIS-NL - the natural
language component of the much larger, EPSRC-sponsored ISIS project
(an Integrated Sensor Information System). ISIS-NL uses a new
architecture, the forum-based Queen's Advanced Dialogue System
(QuADS), which builds on our experiences of working with QC, as well
as drawing from Bunt's Dynamic Interpretation Theory. In the course
of the seminar I will consider some of the advantages afforded by an
object-oriented approach to dialogue management as well as considering
some of the limitations of current implementations and possible ways
forward in dialogue systems development.
