Java-based Incremental Dialog Framework
Jindigo is a framework for developing and experimenting with incremental spoken dialog systems, developed at the Department of Speech Music and Hearing, KTH.
An incremental dialog system process its input and output word-by-word instead of utterance-by-utterance. This allows, among other things, a more natural, rapid turn-taking.
Jindigo is an open source project that is available via Sourceforge
- Java-based, platform independent
- Open source
- Modularized and extendible
