  • Patent number: 10896074
    Abstract: An interactive processing device according to an embodiment acquires one/more items' information for predetermined operation through interaction with a user, and includes one/more itemized-processing-units and an interaction-control-unit. The itemized-processing-units corresponds to the items. The interaction-control-unit controls the interaction collaboratively with the itemized-processing-units. The interaction-control-unit transmits user-input information to each itemized-processing-unit. Each itemized-processing-unit extracts a candidate for to-be-acquired information and transmits the candidate to the interaction-control-unit with likelihood information of being the to-be-acquired information. The interaction-control-unit determines a candidate having first-threshold-satisfying likelihood as information of an item corresponding to the candidate-transmitted itemized-processing-unit. When undetermined information item exists, the interaction-control-unit outputs inquiry for the item information.
