Specification

 

 
Many thanks for your support of EMMA. The specific comments
your bring up have been discussed in detail by the 
EMMA subgroup and they have formulated the following
responses. Could you please confirm on the public list,
www-multimodal@w3.org if this resolution of the issues is
acceptable.
 
3.1 Suggest use of emma:literal for raw recognition results as well as
for
literal semantic results from language understanding.
 
RESPONSE: We agree that this should be clarified but note that the 
specification as it currently stands does in fact allow for the use of
emma:literal for raw recognition results. We have clarified this in the
new draft of the specification.
 
3.2 Request removal of test 1501 since the use of emma:uninterpreted to
indicate below threshold input is not described in the EMMA
specification.
 
RESPONSE: We agree and have removed this test assertion.
 
3.3 Request removal of tests 902 and 903 since these constraints on the
resource attribute on emma:derived-from are not described in the EMMA
specification.
 
RESPONSE: We agree and have removed these test assertions.
 
3.4 Request removal of test assertion 801 for inline emma:model since
this test contradicts the EMMA schema, in which emma:model can only be
a child of emma:emma
 
RESPONSE: We agree and have removed this test assertion.

EMMA Implementation Report
 
 
 
Executive Summary:
 
 
 
AT&T recognizes the crucial role of standards in the 
 
creation and deployment of next generation services supporting 
 
more natural and effective interaction through spoken
 
and multimodal interfaces, and continues to be a firm supporter
 
of W3C's activities in the area of spoken and multimodal standards.
 
As a participating member of the W3C Multimodal Interaction
 
working group, AT&T welcomes the Extensible Multimodal Annotation (EMMA)
 
1.0 Candidate Recommendation.
 
 
 
EMMA 1.0 provides a detailed language for capturing the
 
range of possible interpretations of multimodal inputs and their
 
associated metadata through a full range of input processing stages,
 
from recognition, through understanding and integration, to 
 
dialog management. The creation of a common standard for
 
the representation of multimodal inputs is critical in enabling
 
rapid prototyping of multimodal applications, facilitating 
 
interoperation of components from different vendors, and
 
enabling effective logging and archiving of multimodal interactions.
 
            
 
AT&T is very happy to contribute to the further progress of the 
 
emerging EMMA standard by submitting an EMMA 1.0 implementation report.
 
EMMA 1.0 results are already available from an AT&T 
 
EMMA server which is currently being used in the development
 
of numerous multimodal prototypes and trial services.
 
            
 
Technical Details:
 
            
 
Suggest use of emma:literal for raw recognition results as well as for 
 
literal semantic results from language understanding.
 
            
 
Request removal of test 1501 since the use of emma:uninterpreted to
 
indicate below threshold input is not described in the EMMA
specification. 
 
            
 
Request removal of tests 902 and 903 since these constraints on the 
 
resource attribute on emma:derived-from are not described in the EMMA
 
specification.
 
 
 
Request removal of test assertion 801 for inline emma:model since
 
this test contradicts the EMMA schema, in which emma:model can only be
 
a child of emma:emma.
