Kenji Sagae, David DeVault, David Traum, Gwen Christian: “Towards natural language understanding of partial speech recognition results in dialog systems”

May 31, 2009 | Boulder, CO

Speaker: Kenji Sagae, David DeVault, David Traum, Gwen Christian
Host: 2009 Human Language Technology conference and meeting of the North American chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (NAACL-HLT 2009)

We investigate natural language understanding of partial speech recognition results to equip a dialogue system with incremental language processing capabilities for more realistic human-computer conversations. We show that relatively high accuracy can be achieved in understanding of spontaneous utterances before utterances are completed.
