A multi-agent conversational system with heterogeneous data sources access

Eduardo M. Eisman, María Navarro, Juan Luis Castro
2016 Expert systems with applications  
If the Virtual Assistant does not recognize the whole question, the Decision Agent sends it to the Bookseller. 4.  ...  This is an advantage because it allows each agent to adapt itself to the particular features of each problem.  ...  In addition, the system can perform well with a relatively small number of rules. Obviously, the more complete the grammar is, the better for the recognition since less ambiguity is generated.  ...
