The development of an intelligent user interface that supports multimodal access to multiple applications is a challenging task. In this paper we present a generic multimodal interface system where the user interacts with an anthropomorphic personalized interface agent using speech and natural gestures. The knowledge-based and uniform approach of SmartKom(More)
Today " s production systems face the challenge of high dynamics and rising complexity which calls for new ways of production planning and control. Autonomous control in logistics lets each logistic object take its own decisions and thus leads to a shift from central planning in advance to production control in real time. This paper presents the results of(More)
The development of large-scale dialog systems requires a flexible architecture model and adequate software support to cope with the challenge of system integration. This contribution 1 presents a general framework for building integrated natural-language and multimodal dialog systems. Our approach relies on a distributed component model that enables(More)
