Model of Incremental Dialogue Processing David Schlangen Department of Linguistics University of Potsdam, Germany das@ling.uni-potsdam.de Gabriel Skantze∗ Dept. of Speech, Music and Hearing KTH, Stockholm, Sweden gabriel@speech.kth.se Abstract We present a general model and concep- tual framework for specifying architec- tures for incremental processing in dia- logue systems, in particular with respect to the topology of the network of modules that make up the system, the way informa- tion flows through this network, how in- formation increments are ‘packaged’, and how these increments are processed by the modules. This model enables the precise specification of incremental systems and hence facilitates detailed comparisons be- tween systems, as well as giving guidance on designing n...
