STKU-4: Using a Data-Driven Approach to Design, Build, & Tune Spoken Dialogue Systems

SpeechTEK University – Wednesday, April 26, 2017 – Wednesday 26 April 
13:30 – 16:30

This workshop addresses the whole lifecycle of using data-driven approaches to design, train, and tune practical dialogue systems. The workshop focuses on natural language solutions in call center applications, but many of the techniques are equally applicable to building robust intelligent assistants. Topics covered in the workshop include using live Wizard-of-Oz techniques to test dialogue strategies and gather early customer language for semantic design; managing data collections; semantic annotation (including multi-dimensional semantics); training, testing, and tuning grammars; and data-driven approaches to optimizing dialogue and system performance.
