A human-machine natural interactive system, the Intelligent Chinese Dialogue System, is introduced in the paper. In the proposed system, users can ask questions and retrieve right answers in natural speech. The system consists of five modules, i.e., dialogue processor, task processor, natural language interface, user model and knowledgebase. It has the capabilities in dialogue management, table-based knowledge learning of task domain and linguistics domain, and speech generation. It can analyze userís input in natural language, generate Chinese natural sentences, then to synthesize them as speech output. It is in a domain specific structure, while not designed for a specific domain. Users can edit the tables for knowledge learning, and create their own applications in different domains. The system architecture and the realization procedures are discussed in detail in the paper.
