Abstract

Developing sophisticated turn-taking behavior is necessary for next-generation dialogue systems. However, incorporating real users into the development cycle is expensive and current simulation techniques are inadequate. As a foundation for advancing turn-taking behavior, we present a temporal simulator that models the interaction between the user and the system, including speech, voice activity detection, and incremental speech recognition. We describe the details of the simulator and demonstrate it on a sample domain.
