July 5, 2012 | Seoul, Korea

Speaker: Fabrizio Morbini, Eric Forbell, David DeVault, Kenji Sagae, David Traum and Albert "Skip" Rizzo
Host: SIGdial 2012

Abstract: We present a mixed initiative conversational dialogue system designed to address primarily mental health care concerns related to military deployment. It is supported by a new information-state based dialogue manager, FLoReS (Forward-Looking, Reward Seeking dialogue manager), that allows both advanced, flexible, mixed initiative interaction, and efficient policy creation by domain experts. To easily reach its target population this dialogue system is accessible as a web application.
