SPICOS II - A Speech Understanding Dialogue System

Harald Höge

Siemens AG, Munich, Germany

SPICOS II represents a speaker adaptive speech understanding dialogue system allowing data base requests. The system consists of a dialogue manager, components for acoustic and linguistic analysis and components for data base access and answer generation. The acoustic analysis is based on a speaker adaptive articulatory feature vector and speaker-independent HMM-phoneme models. The linguistic analysis is carried out using an augmented phrase structure grammar and a formal-logic semantic representation.
