SmartKom : Symmetric Multimodality in an Adaptive and Reusable Dialogue Shell

  title={SmartKom : Symmetric Multimodality in an Adaptive and Reusable Dialogue Shell},
  author={Wolfgang Wahlster},
We introduce the notion of symmetric multimodality for dialogue systems in which all input modes (eg. speech, gesture, facial expression) are also available for output, and vice versa. A dialogue system with symmetric multimodality must not only understand and represent the user's multimodal input, but also its own multimodal output. We present the SmartKom system, that provides full symmetric multimodality in a mixed-initiative dialogue system with an embodied conversational agent. SmartKom… CONTINUE READING
