This book summarizes the main problems posed by the design of a man-machine dialogue system and suggests some ideas to continue on the path to an efficient, realistic and fluid communication between humans and machines. It is based on the author development and research and experiments, with concerns for the fields of artificial intelligence, automated language processing, man-machine interfaces and notably multimodal or multimedia interfaces.
