DialogOS: Simple and Extensible Dialogue Modeling

Alexander Koller, Timo Baumann, Arne Köhn


We present the open-source extensible dialog manager DialogOS. DialogOS features simple finite-state based dialog management (which can be expanded to more complex DM strategies via a full-fledged scripting language) in combination with integrated speech recognition and synthesis in multiple languages. DialogOS runs on all major platforms, provides a simple-to-use graphical interface and can easily be extended via well-defined plugin and client interfaces, or can be integrated server-side into larger existing software infrastructures. We hope that DialogOS will help foster research and teaching given that it lowers the bar of entry into building and testing spoken dialog systems and provides paths to extend one's system as development progresses.
