Dialog management in the waxholm system

Rolf Carlson, Sheri Hunnicutt, Joakim Gustafsson

In this paper we will describe the natural language and dialog component in the Waxholm system. Our parser, STINA, is knowledge based and is designed as a probabilistic language model. The dialog management, also implemented in STINA, is based on grammar rules and lexical semantic features. The parser is running with two different time scales corresponding to the words in each utterance and to the turns in the dialog. Topic selection is accomplished based on probabilities calculated from user initiatives.
