Title: Recent Trends in Discourse and Dialogue
Edited By: Wolfgang Minker
Laila Dybkjær
URL: http://www.springer.com/978-1-4020-6820-1
Series Title: Text, Speech and Language Technology
Description:

This book is a collection of eleven chapters which together represent an
original contribution to the field of (multimodal) spoken dialogue systems.
The chapters include highly relevant topics, such as dialogue modeling in
research systems versus industrial systems, evaluation, miscommunication
and error handling, grounding, statistical and corpus-based approaches to
discourse and dialogue modeling, data analysis, and corpus annotation and
annotation tools. The book contains several detailed application studies,
including, e.g., speech-controlled MP3 players in a car environment,
negotiation training with a virtual human in a military context,
application of spoken dialogue to question-answering systems, and cognitive
aspects in tutoring systems. The chapters vary considerably with respect to
the level of expertise required in advance to benefit from them. However,
most chapters start with a state-of-the-art description from which all
readers from the spoken dialogue community may benefit. Overview chapters
and state-of-the-art descriptions may also be of interest to people from
the human-computer interaction community.

Written for:
Advanced graduate students, PhD students, academic and industrial
researchers and practitioners
