Second International Conference on Spoken Language Processing (ICSLP'92)
Banff, Alberta, Canada
In this paper, we present the general architecture of the multimodal dialogue system PARTNER which is designed for goal-oriented applications using speech input and output. Organized around three major components: an I/O manager; a Dialogue manager, and an Application manager, its architecture permits easy implementation of new applications, and new modalities as well as different languages. A common meaning representation language is used as a vehicle for internal communications. Our objective is to design and implement a Man-Machine dialogue interface that is generic and efficient while emphasizing its human-likeness. Currently, the proposed architecture is being validated for several real-world applications.
