A Domain Model Centered Approach to Spoken Language Dialog Systems

Dale Russell

Motorola Human Interface Laboratory

This paper presents a view of Spoken Language Dialog Systems in which a Domain Model is the unifying feature, providing a common representation of knowledge about the domain of application that is shared by many components of the system. The information in the Domain Model is used in different ways by the grammar and parser, the speech recognizer, the dialog manager, and the back end interface. Sharing a common knowledge base allows these components to operate together seamlessly, while maintaining modularity.
