Tutorial 5: Vocal Dialogue Management: Frame-Based ApproachesThis tutorial description has been updated
The goal of this tutorial is to introduce an approach to human-machine dialogue management that is based on frame-based dialogue models; the connections with current industrial standards such as VoiceXML, as well as the use of rapid dialogue development tools, will be presented. The various techniques will be illustrated during two practicals: one focusing on VoiceXML-based dialogues (implementation of the best strategy to the prisoners' dilemma) and one on rapid dialogue prototyping using the EPFL dialogue platform (building a simple dialogue system for controlling the home by voice).
