We present a new approach to dialogue management based on the use of multiple, interconnected policies. Instead of capturing the complexity of the interaction in a single large policy, the dialogue manager operates with a collection of small local policies combined concurrently and hierarchically. The metacontrol of these policies relies on an activation vector updated before and after each turn.
