An Integration Framework for a Mobile Multimodal Dialogue System Accessing the Semantic Web

Advanced intelligent multimodal interface systems usually comprise many sub-systems. For the integration of already existing software components in the Smartweb system we developed an integration framework, the IHUB. It allows us to reuse already existing components for interpretation and processing of multimodal user interactions. The framework facilitates the integration of the user in the interpretation loop by controlling the message flow in the system which is important in our domain, the multimodal access to the Semantic Web. A technical evaluation of the framework shows the efficient routing of messages to make real-time interactive editing of semantic queries possible.
