Course language

Goals of the project course

The talking elevator in building C7.4 has come to be an iconic feature of the CoLi department. This software project will develop a spoken dialog system to upgrade the one currently installed. The participants will work on several components, including:

We will place strong emphasis on team-based collaboration in the context of designing, integrating, and testing the components, before the full system is deployed to the elevator itself.
