Integrating location, visibility, and Question-Answering in a spoken dialogue system for pedestrian city exploration
2012 (English)In: Proceedings of the 13th Annual Meeting of the Special Interest Group on Discourse and Dialogue (SIGDIAL), 2012, 134-136 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
We demonstrate a spoken dialogue-based information system for pedestrians. The system is novel in combining geographic information system (GIS) modules such as a visibility engine with a question-answering (QA) system, integrated within a dialogue system architecture. Users of the demonstration system can use a web-based version (simulating pedestrian movement using StreetView) to engage in a variety of interleaved conversations such as navigating from A to B, using the QA functionality to learn more about points of interest (PoI) nearby, and searching for amenities and tourist attractions. This system explores a variety of research questions involving the integration of multiple information sources within conversational interaction.
