Abstract:
COMET (COordinated Multimedia Explanation Testbed) is a research system that we are developing to explore the coordinated generation of multimedia explanations of equipment maintenance and repair procedures. The form and content of all material presented is generated interactively, with an emphasis on coordinating multiple media to allow cross-references between media and to make possible display layout that reflects the fine-grain relationships among the material presented. COMET's architecture includes multiple static and dynamic knowledge sources, a content planner, a media coordinator, media generators (currently text and graphics), and a media layout manager. Examples are given of the kinds of material processed and produced by each of the components.
