A Domain Knowledge Advisor for Dialogue Systems
Porfírio Pena Filipe,
This paper describes ongoing research in order to enhance our Domain Knowledge Manager (DKM) that is a module of a multi‑propose Spoken Dialogue System (SDS) architecture. The application domain is materialized as an arbitrary set of devices, such as household appliances, providing useful tasks to the SDS users. Our main contribution is a DKM advisor service, which suggests the best task‑device pairs to satisfy a request. Additionally, we also propose a DKM recognizer service to identify the domain’s concepts from a natural language request. These services use as knowledge source a domain model, to obtain knowledge about devices and the tasks they provide. The implementation of these services allows the DKM to provide a high‑level and easy to use small interface, instead of a conventional service interface with several remote procedures/methods. These services have been tested into a domain simulator. Our contributions try to reach SDS domain portability issues.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
The program and more details are available here.
