Second International Conference on Spoken Language Processing (ICSLP'92)
Banff, Alberta, Canada
This paper describes the multi-site spoken language data collection procedure for the ATIS (Air Travel Information System) domain, which has been co-ordinated by MADCOW (Multi-site ATIS Data Collection Working group). We summarize the motivation for this effort, the implementation of the multi-site data collection paradigm, and the accomplishments of MADCOW in monitoring the collection and distribution of 14,000 utterances of spontaneous speech from five sites for use in a multi-site common evaluation of speech, natural language and spoken language.
