Abstract:

The goal of the research is the development, over a five-year period, of a speech understanding system capable of engaging a human operator in a natural conversation about a specific task domain. During the second year of the project, a new task domain was chosen the assembly and repair of small appliances, beginning with a leaky faucet. This change was made to provide for more complex interactions of a user with the system, involving a sequence of subtasks. Major modifications were made in all parts of the system, the most important of which was the development of a new parsing strategy. A description of this second version of the SRI speech understanding system is the primary content of this report.
