CONFERENCE (INTERNATIONAL) Extendable Dialog Script Description Language for Natural Language User Interfaces
The Second International Conference on Intelligent Systems and Applications
April 01, 2013
Natural language user interfaces are expected to be useful and provide a friendly atmosphere for human users working with intelligent human-computer interaction systems. Building correct and consistent large-scale script data for such interfaces requires large costs for construction and maintenance. Scripts written by many end-users in thoroughly flexible script languages might be a practical solution to this problem. We pro- pose a dialog script description language and its framework. Two versions of script execution engines have been developed in C++ and Erlang programming languages. An example dialog script processed by one of these engines shows that a script editing function can be successfully represented by the script language. Because the script language has self-extending flexibility and ability to represent several versions of scripting languages, it increases the opportunity for end-users to accumulate and share a large amount of script data.
