what is this?

There is an increasing need for natural interaction with a variety of machines and information services which uses either natural language dialogue or some more restricted way of interaction which incorporates aspects of human dialogue. In this project we have conducted research addressing this need by building a computational model of dialogue moves.

For detailed information about TRINDI please look in the the annual report of 99. A brief project summary can be read online.


The SIRIdUS project is part of the Information Society Technologies programme in the Fifth Framework for Community Research in the European Community.
