  • Motivation: Is speech a useful modality for electronic devices?

  • Hardware: How would one get speech in “other” devices?

  • Architecture: What should the system look like?

  • Dialog: What should/will these conversations be like?

Speech Graffiti Dialog

  • Artificial subset language

  • Tree-structured functions

  • Universal conversational primitives

  • User-directed

  • Great for recognition

  • Entirely declarative (and automatic)

Minimal keywords l.jpg
Minimal Keywords

  • hello-james

  • options

  • where-am-i, where-was-i

  • go-ahead, ok

  • status

  • goodbye

  • what-is, what-is-the

  • how-do-i

  • more

Session Management

  • hello-james/goodbye

  • User: blah blah blah...System: ignoring userUser: hello-jamesSystem: stereo, digital cameraUser: stereoSystem: stereo hereUser: goodbyeSystem: goodbyeUser: blah blah blah...System: ignoring user

Query l.jpg

  • what-is path/status

  • User: what-is-the am frequencySystem: the am frequency is five hundred thirtyUser: what-is randomSystem: random is offUser: what-is-the stereoSystem: the stereo is tuner

Help exploration implicit navigation l.jpg

  • how-do-i.../options/path options

  • User: control alarm clock radio optionsSystem: alarm, clock, radio, sleep...User: moreSystem: x10, stereoUser: stereo optionsSystem: while turning stereo on: off, am, fm, auxiliary, cd...

  • where-am-i

  • User: what is the discSystem: the disc is threeUser: where am iSystem: stereo cd disc

Research questions l.jpg
Research Questions

  • Is the subset language learnable?

  • Once learned, is it efficient?

  • Are user mistakes infrequent enough?

  • Are system mistake infrequent enough?

  • Can one generalize from one device to another?

  • Is the subset language well retained?
