Technical Report Number
Although speech recognition has improved significantly in recent years, it use in commercial environments has been limited by the inability of systems to model conventional co-operative dialogue. Any natural language systems for co-operative dialogue should at least be able to account for the many types of sub-dialogues that occur in conversations. Plan-based techniques provide a computationally powerful method for handling such dialogues. We discuss in this report our first attempt at building a plan-recognizer for an overall speech-driven system which interacts via a naturally restricted subset of English in a limited domain.
