Galatea: Open-Source Software for Developing Anthropomorphic Spoken Dialog Agents [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Summary Galatea is a software toolkit to develop a human-like spoken dialog agent. In order to easily integrate the modules of different characteristics including speech recognizer, speech synthesizer, facial animation synthesizer, and dialog controller, each module is modeled as a virtual machine having a simple common interface and connected to each other through a broker (communication manager). Galatea employs model-based speech and facial animation synthesizers whose model parameters are adapted easily to those for an existing person if his or her training data is given. The software toolkit that runs on both UNIX/Linux and Windows operating systems will be publicly available in the middle of 2003 [7, 6].
