Spoken Conversation Summarization

Speech is the primary medium of human communication. With the expansion of the call center industry, spoken conversation data is being generated in overwhelming amounts. Large corporations often outsource their customer support, and hosting call centers either monitor the calls in real time or record them for later review. A summary is a reduced form of an original document that carries only important information. The importance of information varies with respect to the purpose of a summary.

Personal Healthcare Agents (PHA)

“Agent” is an overloaded term in the computer science and artificial intelligence domain. More recently researchers and practitioners have become acquainted to interact with digital agents, to speak natural language and have relatively simple tasks executed. Such agents can retrieve contacts, set alarms, provide driving directions to your work location and occasionally surprise with funny jokes.  This current state-of the-art has been a tremendous achievement following decades of research in the past 50 years [Riccardi , 2014]. Personal...

Mobile Conversational Agents

A conversational agent is a software that is able to answer specific or generic users requests, to interact and to help accomplish his or her goals. We have been very active since its predecessor technology ( spoken conversational agents or Interactive Voice Response (IVR) systems ) and lately since the debut of so-called smartphones. If you are a student you may attend one our courses and check this link for a class on programming smartphones and tablets or an introductory course on so-called artificial intelligent agents that understand...

Conversational Machines

Conversational agents need to make decisions through a very large set of alternatives reacting to users’ input and choose the best answer that most likely will lead to the accomplishment of a task. In this demo we show the internal belief states of such machines using so-called Partially Observable Markov Decision Processes. In this demo it’s possible to see all the intermediate steps in the decision processes associated to the voice of the user and the prompt of the system. See demo: Conversational Machines with Partially...
