This paper has been developed to draw a comparison between various available approaches for dialogue management. Currently there is much interest in building interactive human-computer interfaces which involve spoken input and output. Spoken dialogue system usually combines speech recognition with natural language understanding, language generation and dialogue management. Dialog systems are created for domain specific applications, so that a high demand for a flexible dialog system framework arises. There have been several approaches to dialog management. In this paper we present three different approaches to the dialog management.
