Announcing the release of

Iwaki interaction and dialogue manager library and its ROS wrapper:

Iwaki interaction manager is currently used to manage both
conversational (verbal and non-verbal) and task-related interactions
for two social robots at Carnegie Mellon University. The task-related
interactions include:
- information retrieval requests for a new version of Hala, the
bilingual robot receptionist at CMU Qatar,
- table-game playing interactions for an upcoming robot at CMU.

Iwaki includes a production system, inspired by COLLAGEN's plan tree
[Rich and Sidner, 1998], that interprets rules (recipes) stored in
XML. The production system approach allows creating interactions with
aspects of finite-state, frame/script, and information-state-based
dialogue management. The distribution includes examples and a manual
(under development).
