This paper presents our current work in the design of a multimodal dialogue system for an Ambient Intelligence application in the home environment. The aim of the system is to facilitate users interaction with home appliances, either by voice or using a classical GUI interface. The paper describes the most relevant aspects of the system's operation, which is based on the use of an abstract data structure called ‘action’. It also explains how the system generates responses according to user requests, for example, switching off a light in a room.
