Public Release of the OpenDial Toolkit

OpenDial: A generic Java-based software toolkit for building dialogue systems.

After nearly three years of development, we are pleased to announce the first public release of the OpenDial toolkit!

OpenDial is a Java-based software toolkit that can be used to develop robust and adaptive dialogue systems for various application domains.  Dialogue understanding, management and generation models are expressed in OpenDial through probabilistic rules encoded in a simple XML format.

You can find more information about the toolkit on the project website:

The current release contains a completely refactored code base, a large set of unit tests and a full-fledged graphical interface.  You can also find on the website practical examples of dialogue domains and a step-by-step documentation on how to use the toolkit.  The software is released under an MIT open source license.

The toolkit has been originally developed as part of Pierre Lison's PhD work within the Language Technology Group of the University of Oslo.  Don't hesitate to contact Pierre for any questions or comments.
