This research looks at the POMDP models used for dialogue management within Spoken Dialogue Systems (SDS). In particular, it examines the difficulty of handling multimodal inputs. It proposes a generalisation of the POMDP model in order to tackle this. This model is shown, via a Car Advisory system, to improve tractability for multimodal inputs.
