MUXING: a telephone-access Mandarin conversational system

C. Wang, D. Scott Cyphers, Xiaolong Mou, Joseph Polifroni, Stephanie Seneff, J. Yi, Victor Zue

MUXING is a telephone-based conversational system that allows users to access weather information in Mandarin Chinese over the telephone. Although MUXING utilizes the same architecture as well as most of the same human language technology components as its English predecessor, JUPITER, some modifi- cations to the system were necessary to account for differences between English andMandarin Chinese. In addition, the weather database needed to be modified to reflect regions of greater interest to potential Chinese users. This paper describes our system development effort, paying particular attention toMandarinspecific changes to the original JUPITER system.
