Olympus is a complete framework for implementing spoken dialog systems. It was created at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) during the late 2000's and benefits from ongoing improvements in functionality. It's main purpose is to help researchers interested in conversational agents to implement and test their ideas on complete systems, without having to build them on their own. To this end, Olympus incorporates the Ravenclaw dialog manager, which supports mixed-initiative interaction, as well as components that handle speech recognition, understanding, generation and synthesis. Olympus uses a Galaxy message passing layer to integrate its components ans supports multi-modal interaction. The Olympus/Ravenclaw distribution includes several example systems that demonstrate the operations of its various features.
