Statistical Spoken Dialogue Systems have been around for many years. However, access to these systems has always been difficult as there is still no publicly available end-to-end system implementation. To alleviate this, we present PyDial, an opensource end-to-end statistical spoken dialogue system toolkit which provides implementations of statistical approaches for all dialogue system modules. Moreover, it has been extended to provide multidomain conversational functionality. It offers easy… CONTINUE READING
