Optimizing Automated Call Routing by Integrating Spoken Dialog Models with Queuing Models
Organizations are increasingly turning to spoken dialog systems for automated call routing to reduce call center costs. To maintain quality service even in cases of failure, these systems often resort to ad-hoc rules for dispatching calls to a human operator. We present a principled procedure for determining when callers should be transferred to operators based on a cost-benefit analysis. The procedure integrates models that predict when a call is likely to fail using spoken dialog features with queuing models of call center volume and service time. We evaluate how the procedure would have performed on cases drawn from logs of interactions with a legacy spoken dialog system.
