Incrementality in Verbal Interaction

Since I've joined a research program at Potsdam University end of last year (as a researcher and PhD student), I've decided to use this blog for some additional, more personal updates. This is the first :-).

Our research is concerned with human-machine spoken dialog systems from an incremental, i.e. real-time processing, perspective. As such, members of our team, including me, were recently invited to a workshop on "Incrementality in Verbal Interaction." The workshop brought together an interesting mix of perspectives on incrementality from Psycholinguistics as well as Theoretical and Computational Linguistics. Slides from our project presentation are available here.

Hi Okko, Very nice presentation. I am still trying to digest the incremental dialog manager functionality mentioned in presentation, but you are doing is amazing. I wish I could ever get chance to research like you are doing. Thank you for responding me earlier on Multi-modal applications thing. I would really like to learn from you that how you managed meta session things in your application.

Keep up the graat work
