Title: SmartKom
Subtitle: Foundations of Multimodal Dialogue Systems
URL: http://www.springer.com/978-3-540-23732-7
Series Title: Cognitive Technologies
Description:

The result of four years of intensive research in a large multimodal
dialogue project involving 12 partners from academia and industry, SmartKom
is one of the most advanced multimodal dialogue systems worldwide and is a
landmark project in the history of intelligent user interfaces.

The system provides symmetric multimodality in a mixed-initiative dialogue
system with an embodied conversational agent. The same software
architecture and components are used in three fully operational application
scenarios. The theoretical and practical foundations of SmartKom represent
a new generation of multimodal dialogue systems that deal not only with
simple modality integration and synchronization, but cover the full
spectrum of multimodal dialogue.

With contributions by leading scientists in the field, this book gives the
first comprehensive overview of the results of this seminal project.
