Best Practice in Spoken Language Dialogue Systems (DISC)
The DISC project on "Spoken Language Dialogue Systems and
Components: Best practice in development and evaluation" was
initiated by ELSNET and launched on 1 June 1997. It lasted until
31 December 1998 but was immediately continued in the DISC-2
project which stopped on 31 December 1999.
The first phase of
DISC consisted in developing a detailed set of development and
evaluation methods and procedures for best practice in the field
of dialogue engineering as well as a range of much needed
dialogue engineering support concepts and software tools.
second phase of DISC, i.e. DISC-2, was mainly focused on testing
the validity and the usability of the draft best practice scheme,
the concepts and the tools, and on the integration, packaging and
dissemination of the final best practice scheme.
