  • Online:2018-11-14 Published:2018-11-14

Abstract: Spoken dialogue system is the core technology in the field of human-computer interaction,and it is an important way to realize the harmonious human-computer interaction.The research has great theory significance and application value.The advances of theory and technology in spoken dialogue systems have always been greatly concerned.The status and advances of dialogue management and spoken dialogue system were comprehensively summarized in this paper.First,the main research questions of spoken dialogue system were introduced comprehensively,including the research contents of the modules,key technologies,portability and robust design.Then,the various spoken dialogue management strategies were systematically analyzed from the perspective of theoretical models,advances and usability.Finally,several possible directions and problems for further consideration and discussion were also mentioned.

Key words: Spoken dialogue system,Dialogue management,Dialogue model,Human-computer interaction
