LINTest: A Development Tool for Testing Dialogue Systems

Lars Degerstedt, Arne Jönsson

Linköpings Universitet, Sweden

In this paper we present a development tool for testing dialogue systems. Testing software through the specification is important for software development in general and should be as automated as possible. For dialogue systems, the corpus can be seen as one part of the specification and the dialogue system should be tested on available corpora on each new build. The testing tool is inspired from work on agile software development methods, test driven development and unit testing, and can be used in two modes and during various phases of development.
