The Road to Natural Conversational Speech Interfaces
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Charles L. Ortiz
Issue Date:March 2014
pp. 74-78
To realize truly conversational speech interfaces for applications such as virtual personal assistants, a number of technical challenges must be addressed. This article presents a brief overview of the relevant research literature, which will allow user in...
 
Task inference and distributed task management in the Centibots robotic system
Found in: Proceedings of the fourth international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems (AAMAS '05)
By Benoit Morisset, Charles L. Ortiz, Regis Vincent
Issue Date:July 2005
pp. 860-867
We describe the Centibots system, a very large scale distributed robotic system, consisting of more than 100 robots, that has been successfully deployed in large, unknown indoor environments, over extended periods of time (i.e., durations corresponding to ...
     
Structured negotiation
Found in: Proceedings of the first international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems: part 3 (AAMAS '02)
By Charles L. Ortiz, Eric Hsu
Issue Date:July 2002
pp. 1215-1222
Structured negotiation is proposed as a new method through which collaborating agents can seek consensus on the apportionment of tasks and resources. The approach draws on research in collaborative planning and human dialog understanding: agent interaction...
     
Hierarchical organizations for real-time large-scale task and team environments
Found in: Proceedings of the first international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems: part 3 (AAMAS '02)
By Charles L. Ortiz, Osher Yadgar, Sarit Kraus
Issue Date:July 2002
pp. 1147-1148
We present a novel architecture to design multi--agent systems. Agents are assigned to activities through a coordination process that takes in consideration the specific situation and the skills of the agents. The coordination system can be distributed on ...
