LOGOS: A Multimodal Dialogue System for Controlling Smart Appliances

Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence book series (SCI, volume 142)


The present work details a multimodal dialogue system, which offers user-friendly access to information, entertainment devices and white good appliances. We focus on the speech interface and the spoken dialogue management, with extensive description of the system’s architecture and functionalities. The services supported are detailed, with comprehensive description of the scenarios implemented.
