Title: InproTK in Action: Open-Source Software for Building German-Speaking Incremental Spoken Dialogue Systems

Authors: Timo Baumann, Okko Buß, David Schlangen


We present INPROTK, a toolkit for building incremental spoken dialogue systems. Incremental spoken dialogue systems (systems that may react while the user’s utterance is ongoing) are a fairly recent research topic and allow for exciting new features. Even though toolkits exist that help in building conventional dialogue systems, INPROTK offers both a tested architecture for building incremental SDSs as well as many of the building blocks necessary when building such systems. With INPROTK a researcher can avoid many of the technical difficulties, which hopefully further fosters research in this area.
