Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0195091876, Hardcover)As spoken natural language dialog systems technology continues to make great strides, numerous issues regarding dialog processing still need to be resolved. This book presents an exciting new dialog processing architecture that allows for a number of behaviors required for effective human-machine interactions, including: problem-solving to help the user carry out a task, coherent subdialog movement during the problem-solving process, user model usage, expectation usage for contextual interpretation and error correction, and variable initiative behavior for interacting with users of differing expertise. The book also details how different dialog problems in processing can be handled simultaneously, and provides instructions and in-depth result from pertinent experiments. Researchers and professionals in natural language systems will find this important new book an invaluable addition to their libraries.

This book addrsesses the dialog issues that must be resolved in building effective spoken natural language dialog systems. The authors present an architecture for dialog processing for which an implementation has been constructed that exhibits a number of behaviours required for efficient human-machine dialog including: problem-solving to help the user carry out a task, coherent sub-dialog movement during the problem-solving process, user model usage, expectation usage for contextual interpretation and error correction, variable initiative behaviour for interacting with users of differing expertise. Readers should gain an understanding of how to construct a spoken natural language dialog system capable of exhibiting the necessary behaviours for effective human-computer natural language interaction.
