Welcome to the Speech, Language & Interactive Machines (SLIM) research group. We draw inspiration from linguistics and psychology to help guide our theoretical research and develop computational models of all aspects of spoken dialogue.
Director: Casey Kennington, PhD
The SLIM group has a theoretical as well as a practical aspect to it. We draw inspiration from linguistics and psychology to help guide our theoretical research and develop computational models of all aspects of spoken dialogue. We then implement practical dialogue systems (e.g., as digital personal assistants, robot commands, conversational chatbots) to evaluate the theories and improve people’s lives.
