Summary: cassandra, a speech conversational agent (recognition & synth), a hamlet expert, SpeechTek Europe 2010 participan
Cassandra is our “Figure of Speech”, a title that nicely represents who and what she is. ejTalk’s mission from the very beginning has been to focus on the basic elements of conversation instead of developing products to accomplish a singular task. Most conversational agents today serve a particular purpose. They talk about specific topics but do not communicate in very conversational ways.
ejTalk takes the opposite approach with Cassandra by laying a foundation for the basic principles of day-to-day speech that will one day allow her to talk about anything. Take the example of a greeting: There are many ways to introduce oneself to another person. We may say “hello” to a person we have just met, but to a friend we will say “hey” or “hi.” It may seem like a trivial distinction, but to the human ear, the effect is highly noticeable.
