Abstract / Description of output

In this paper, we present the WIRE system for human intelligence reporting and discuss challenges of deploying spoken language understanding systems for the military, particularly for dismounted warfighters. Using the PARADISE evaluation paradigm, we show that performance models derived using standard metrics can account for 68% of the variance of User Satisfaction. We discuss the implication of these results and how the evaluation paradigm may be modified for the military domain.
