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, etc.) to evaluated the theories and improve people’s lives.
