We will demonstrate the latest version of an ongoing project to create an intelli- gent procedure assistant for use by as- tronauts on the International Space Sta- tion (ISS). The system functionality in- cludes spoken dialogue control of nav- igation, coordinated display of the pro- cedure text, display of related pictures, alarms, and recording and playback of voice notes.

Domain-specific CFG language models are produced by first specialisi...
