Basilica is an event-driven software architec- ture for creating conversational agents as a collection of reusable components. Software engineers and computer scientists can use this general architecture to create increasingly so- phisticated conversational agents. We have developed agents based on Basilica that have been used in various application scenarios and foresee that agents build on Basilica can cater to a wider variety of interactive situations as we continue to add functionality to our archi- tecture.
