Sixth International Conference on Spoken Language Processing
Language generation is a fundamental component of dialogue systems. Over the past year, we have developed a new generation module for conversational systems developed at MIT using the GALAXY architecture. Our generator, which we call GENESIS-II, resolves many of the shortcomings of its predecessor, GENESIS. GENESIS-II makes it substantially easier for users to specify generation, and the generation output is often of a higher quality. In particular, GENESIS-II has improved the ease and quality of generation in foreign languages (Japanese, Chinese, Spanish) and non-traditional languages (SQL, HTML, speech waveforms). In this paper, we focus on the more advanced features of our system.
