D.H.W. Hofs, B.W. van Schooten, Hendrikus J.A. op den Akker

Abstract

In the course of the IMIX project a system was developed to demonstrate how the research performed in the various subprojects could contribute to the development of practical multimodal question answering dialog systems. This chapter describes the IMIX Demonstrator, an information search assistant for the medical domain. The functionalities and the architecture of the system are described, as well as its role in the IMIX project.
