What Are They Achieving Through the Conversation? Modeling Guide-Tourist Dialogues by Extended Grounding Networks
We proposed the WFSTDM which is an expandable and adaptable dialogue management platform. The WFSTDM combines various WFSTs and enables us to develop new dialogue management WFSTs necessary for rapid prototyping of spoken dialogue systems. In this paper, we illustrate the outline of the WFSTDM and introduce the WFSTDM builder, a network-based spoken dialogue system development tool. In addition, we go into details about the spoken dialogue system AssisTra for iPhone that we developed as an example to show the implementation of the WFSTDM on smartphones. We also discuss about spoken dialogue systems on smartphones as tools for collecting field data.
