Dialogues for the Home Machine Environment - D-HOMME

As the modern home environment becomes increasingly populated by IP addressable computational devices, each with its own range of functions, the question arises - how will these communicate with each other, and more importantly, how will human beings interact with these?

D'HOMME aims to develop methods and architectures for building and configuring speech interfaces to networks of small programmable devices in the machine environment of the home. The project will address several research questions including: what sorts of dialogues will humans use with networked domestic programmable devices? what processing architectures & representations best support such dialogues? and, what demands do reconfigurable device networks & language processing components impose?

The project is envisaged as the first phase of a more ambitious and longer-term project. Its results will therefore lay the foundations for further research extending the project's practical and theoretical scope. The initial objectives will be to build baseline demonstrators in English, Spanish & Swedish and to explore and evaluate methods for reconfigurability in the light of plug-and-play device networks.
