About this book
The Handbook of Multimodal and Spoken Dialogue Systems presents current and developing best practice in resource creation for speech input/output software and hardware. This volume brings experts in these fields together to give detailed `how to' information and recommendations on planning spoken dialogue systems, designing and evaluating audiovisual and multimodal systems, and evaluating consumer off-the-shelf products.
In addition to standard terminology in the field, the following topics are covered in depth:
- How to collect high quality data for designing, training, and evaluating multimodal and speech dialogue systems;
- How to evaluate real-life computer systems with speech input and output;
- How to describe and model human-computer dialogue precisely and in depth.
- The first systematic medium-scale compendium of terminology with definitions.
This handbook has been especially designed for the needs of development engineers, decision-makers, researchers, and advanced level students in the fields of speech technology, multimodal interfaces, multimedia, computational linguistics, and phonetics.
