Abstract or Description
Dialog management addresses two specific problems: (1) providing a coherent overall structure to interaction that extends beyond thesingle turn, (2) correctly managing mixedinitiative interaction. We propose a dialog management architecture based on the following elements: handlers that manage interaction focussed on tightly coupled sets of information, a product that reflects mutually agreed-upon information and an agenda that orders the topics relevant to task completion.
