AMICA: the AT&t mixed initiative conversational architecture

Roberto Pieraccini, Esther Levin, Wieland Eckert

In this paper we show how it is possible to design and implement a general architecture that is suitable for the rapid development of human/machine natural language, mixed initiative dialogue systems. The architecture proposed here relies on the assumption that a dialogue system can be modularized into different actions or functions that can be designed separately and implement basic aspects of the dialogue behavior, and a strategy that is fairly independent of the particular application.
