Abstract
The belief that humans will be able to interact with comput-
ers in conversational speech has long been a favorite subject
in science fiction. This reflects the persistent belief that spo-
ken dialogue would be the most natural and powerful user
interface to computers. With recent improvements in com-
puter technology and in speech and language processing,
such systems are starting to appear feasible. There are sig-
nificant technical problems that still need to be solved be-
fore speech-driven interfaces become truly conversational.
This paper describes the results of a ten-year effort building
robust spoken dialogue systems at the University of Roches-
ter.
What is a Dialogue System?
