Building an Arabic Flight Booking Dialogue System Using a Hybrid Rule-Based and Data Driven Approach

Al-Hanouf Al-Ajmi, Nora Al-Twairesh
2021 IEEE Access  
The data-driven approaches show more promising results, but owing to a lack of available training data for Arabic task-oriented DSs, development of an Arabic task-oriented DS has typically been conducted  ...  Approaches for developing Dialogue Systems (DSs) are typically categorized into rule-based and data-driven.  ...  A number of studies have identified the difficulty in locating sufficiently large datasets for training end-to-end DSs. This is especially the case for task-oriented DSs [31] . Williams et al.  ...

Evaluation approaches of fish swimming performance

Fukun Gui, Ping Wang, Changwen Wu
2014 Agricultural Sciences  
It was concluded that these three swimming speeds, in a sense, can be regarded as the equivalent indices for the evaluation of fish swimming performance.  ...  Taking into consideration of the widely used evaluation approaches of the fish swimming performance by different researchers, a recommended classification methodology of the fish swimming performance was  ...  The spontaneous swimming is, needless to say, a status of unsteady swimming but not an index for evaluating a fish's swimming performance.  ...
