Innovation in spoken dialog technology requires a shared platform where new ideas can flourish, new dialog problems can come to the surface and communities can form to leverage different parts of the solution for better spoken dialog systems.
This platform will allow for new application ideas and newly available technologies to be shared which will in turn attract real users, creating real data. The creation of this platform is the goal of DialPort. Therefore, we need a community website and portal that can help the community to create these platforms for future applications and provide a stream of real users. DialPort will work with the spoken dialog community to create and share real user applications that serve as data streams and research platforms.
