Sudeep Gandhe, Alysa Taylor, Jillian Gerten, David Traum: “Rapid Development of Advanced Question-Answering Characters by Non-experts”

June 17, 2011 | Portland, OR

Speaker: Sudeep Gandhe, Alysa Taylor, Jillian Gerten, David Traum
Host: The 12th annual SIGdial Meeting on Discourse and Dialogue

We demonstrate a dialogue system and the accompanying authoring tools that are designed to allow authors with little or no experience in building dialogue systems to rapidly build advanced question-answering characters. To date seven such virtual characters have been built by non-experts using this architecture and tools. Here we demonstrate one such character, PFC Sean Avery, which was developed by a non-expert in 3 months.
