Setting Up User Action Probabilities in User Simulations for Dialog System Development
User simulations are shown to be useful in spoken dialog system development. Since most current user simulations deploy probability models to mimic human user behaviors, how to se...

User simulation in a stochastic dialog system
We present a new methodology of user simulation applied to the evaluation and refinement of stochastic dialog systems. Common weaknesses of these systems are the scarceness of the...

From rule-based to statistical grammars: Continuous improvement of large-scale spoken dialog systems
Statistical Spoken LanguageUnderstandinggrammars (SSLUs) are often used only at the top recognition contexts of modern large-scale spoken dialog systems. We propose to use SSLUs a...

Cooperating to Be Noncooperative: The Dialog System PRACMA
The modeling of noncooperative dialogs, as opposed to dialogs in which the goals of the participants coincide, presents novel challenges to a pragmatically oriented dialog system. ...

A Spoken Dialog System for Chat-Like Conversations Considering Response Timing
If a dialog system can respond to a user as natural as a human, the interaction will be smoother. In this research, we aim to develop a dialog system which can make various behavi...

A Statistical User Simulation Technique for the Improvement of a Spoken Dialog System
Abstract. In this paper, we present a statistical approach for the automatic generation of dialogs by means of a user simulator. This technique can be used to generate dialogs with...
