Dialogue-based interaction with graphical data

Former research with the Laboratory of Dialogue Systems, LSD. This research group aimed at developing techniques and applications enabling the visually impaired people to explore pictures by means of natural language. Our approach was based on ontology-based semantic modeling, automated picture annotation, and smart dialogue interaction.
