  • Publication number: 20200242144
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a display control system includes a processor. The processor is capable of displaying a second sentence and at least a part of a first question-answer pair when accepting a first sentence including a first query keyword. The first sentence is input by a user. The first question-answer pair includes a first question and a first answer to the first question. The first question includes the first query keyword. The second sentence includes a first question keyword included in the first question. The processor is capable of displaying a word other than the first query keyword and the first question keyword in a first form, the first query keyword in a second form different from the first form, and the first question keyword in a third form different from the first form and the second form.

  • Publication number: 20200243082
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a dialog system includes a processor. When a first sentence including one or more words is input by a user, the processor sets at least a part of the one or more words as a first query keyword. The processor selects, from a question-answer table including question-answer pairs, one or more of the question-answer pairs including the first query keyword. Each question-answer pair includes a question and an answer to the question. When a number of the selected question-answer pairs is 1, the processor outputs a first response indicating the answer. When the number is not less than a first threshold, the processor outputs a second response including first and second question keywords. The first question keyword is extracted from question keywords included in one of the pairs. The second question keyword is extracted from other question keywords included in another one of the pairs.

  • Patent number: 10546579
    Abstract: According to an embodiment, a verification system includes a storage controller, first and second receivers, a comparator, a response constructor, a response generator, and an output controller. The storage controller stores, in a storage, first response data and first situation data associated with the first response data. The first receiver receives second response data. The comparator determines a similarity between second situation data indicating a second context for using the second response data and the first situation data. The response constructor constructs response content information comprising the second response data and the first response data associated with the first situation data having the similarity equal to or greater than a threshold. The second receiver receives speech data. The response generator generates a response sentence corresponding to the speech data using the response content information. The output controller outputs for display one or more response sentences.

  • Patent number: 10505210
    Abstract: A fuel cell system uses, as an inlet sealing valve, an eccentric valve having a rubber seat provided with a seal part having such a shape as to increase the surface pressure of a portion in contact with a seal surface of a valve element when pressure in an air supply passage rises. Each of an outlet integration valve and a bypass valve is constituted of an eccentric valve basically identical in structure to the inlet sealing valve. When supply of air to a fuel cell stack is to be stopped during deceleration of a vehicle, a controller closes the inlet sealing valve and opens the bypass valve and, after the inlet sealing valve is fully closed, closes the bypass valve.
