In DFKI we started forming a new team working on a replacement for our multi modal dialog system SiAM-DP. Therefore we formed a team consisted of Magdalena Kaiser, Yannick Körber and me. The idea is that we will create an easy to use framework which helps all of us in DFKI – IUI group with multi modal projects.

The name Ozymandias comes from a  Sci-Fi book called “Deathstalker” and is the private AI of the main character Owen. It has all kinds of tasks like protecting Own, flying his private yard “sunstrider”, hacking into accounts and has access of millions of sensors all over the Deathstalker standing and environment. To talk to Owen it uses a com-implantant and reads gestures and stuff from sensors of the standing.
