Knowledge-Guided Interpretation and Generation of Task-Oriented Dialogue
In this paper, we present an architecture for task-oriented dialogue that integrates the processes of interpretation and generation. We analyze implemented systems based on this architecture—one for meeting support and another for assisting military medics—and discuss results obtained with the first. In closing, we review some related dialogue architectures and outline plans for future research.
