Summary: Dialogue systems represent computer systems whose primary purpose is to communicate with the user in a way that is as close to natural human communication as possible. A dialogue system can combine text, speech and other communication elements both at its input and its output. There are huge possibilities for their application, out of which some of the most important are providing information, issuing commands, assistive systems, as well as applications in education, health services and many more. Dialogue systems rely heavily on so-called speech and language technologies, and that is the leverage of the project team for development of these systems.
