ISIS, which abbreviates Intelligent Speech for Information Systems, is a trilingual spoken dialog system (SDS) for the financial domain. It handles two dialects of Chinese (Cantonese and Putonghua), as well as English ยจ the predominant languages in our region. The system supports spoken language queries regarding stock market information and simulated personal portfolios. Real-time information is retrieved directly from a dedicated Reuters satellite feed. ISIS provides a system test-bed for our work in multilingual speech recognition and generation, speaker authentication, language understanding and dialog modeling. Furthermore, ISIS supports our initial explorations in: (i) CORBA's interoperability and scalability for SDS development; in conjunction with (ii) asynchronous humancomputer interaction by delegation to KQML software agents.
