It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: SmartKom
Subtitle: Foundations of Multimodal Dialogue Systems
Edited By: Wolfgang Wahlster
Series Title: Cognitive Technologies

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.
