Abstract:

Considerable progress has been made in recent years in the development of
dialogue systems that support robust and efficient human-machine
interaction using spoken language. Spoken dialogue technology allows
various interactive applications to be built and used for practical
purposes, and research focuses on issues that aim to increase the system's
communicative competence by including aspects of error correction,
cooperation, multimodality, and adaptation in context.

This book gives a comprehensive view of state-of-the-art techniques that
are used to build spoken dialogue systems. It provides an overview of the
basic issues such as system architectures, various dialogue management
methods, system evaluation, and also surveys advanced topics concerning
extensions of the basic model to more conversational setups.

The goal of the book is to provide an introduction to the methods,
problems, and solutions that are used in dialogue system development and
evaluation. It presents dialogue modelling and system development issues
relevant in both academic and industrial environments and also discusses
requirements and challenges for advanced interaction management and future
research.
