Computer-based adaption of cooking recipes integrated in a speech dialogue assistance system
Speech input and output allow for a natural and intuitive means to communicate with a technical device or system. This motivates the development of speech dialogue systems for convenient human-machine interaction. A speech dialogue system is particularly suitable in scenarios in which the user cannot use his or her hands for interaction, for example while driving a car. In kitchen environments, a speech dialogue system promises to be very useful as well. The application CooCo (Cooking Coach) aims at providing assistance under working conditions in a common kitchen. CooCo supports the user to choose recipes best matching the requests of the user and gives advice during the cooking processes. In this paper, the focus lies on the conceptual view on building up CooCo and the integration of a computer-based approach to adapt cooking recipes.
