This talk describes the outcome of a successful Japanese national project conducted under the “Research-for-the-Future” program and led by the speaker as the principal investigator. The system is based on the following three original principles: (a) Dialogue Management based on both User and System Modeling (by introducing a novel type of interacting automaton), (b) Use of “Key Concepts” in information retrieval (including processing of polysemy, homonymy, and unknown words), and (c) Optimization of Retrieval Performance through Relevance Score Estimation (by introducing a measure of relevance of search results based on users’ judgments. The advantages of these novel principles have been demonstrated by a pilot system.
Hiroya Fujisaki is Professor Emeritus at the University of Tokyo. His research interests are in languages, processing of language (both spoken and written) by humans and machines, as well as in human and artificial intelligence, with special emphasis on modeling. For his academic works and technical leadership, he has received a number of awards including the Distinguished Achievement Award from the Institute of Electrical Communication Engineers of Japan (1973), the Third Millennium Medal from the IEEE (2000), the Medal for Significant Scientific Achievement from ISCA (2008), and the Medal for Exceptional Service from ISCA (2015). He was also named Person of Merit in Science and Technology by the Mayor of Tokyo (1989). Dr. Fujisaki is serving as Distinguished Lecturer of ISCA for the years 2016 and 2017.
