US Patent:
20130018895, Jan 17, 2013
Filed:
Jul 12, 2012
Appl. No.:
13/547967
Inventors:
William G. Harless - Bethesda MD,
Michael G. Harless - Rockville MD,
Marcia A. Zier - Bethesda MD,
International Classification:
G06F 17/30
US Classification:
707748, 707E17014
Abstract:
Systems and methods are provided for simulating an interactive conversation with a recorded subject. In accordance with an implementation, a server receives a text string corresponding to a query spoken by a user during the interactive conversation, and subsequently obtains information associated with a plurality of candidate queries posed to the recorded subject. The obtained information may include, for corresponding ones of the candidate queries, a primary keyword, at least one of a contextual keyword or a qualifier keyword associated with the primary keyword, and synonym data. The server may generate scores for the candidate queries based on the text string and at least one of the keyword data or the synonym data. Based on the candidate query scores, the server may select one of the candidate queries that corresponds to the text string and video content that responds to the spoken query.
