Improving Generalisation to New Speakers in Spoken Dialogue State Tracking

Iñigo Casanueva, Thomas Hain, Phil Green
2016 Interspeech 2016  
Statistical dialogue management has shown resilience against high ASR error rates, hence making it useful to improve the performance of these interfaces.  ...  However, little research was devoted to dialogue management personalisation to specific users so far.  ...  The dialogue corpus used in the following experiments has been generated with simulated users interacting with a rule based dialogue manager.  ...

Spoken dialogue management using probabilistic reasoning

Nicholas Roy, Joelle Pineau, Sebastian Thrun
2000 Proceedings of the 38th Annual Meeting on Association for Computational Linguistics - ACL '00  
We demonstrate that under the same noisy conditions, a POMDP dialogue manager makes fewer mistakes than an MDP dialogue manager.  ...  Furthermore, as the quality of speech recognition degrades, the POMDP dialogue manager automatically adjusts the policy.  ...  The assistance of the Nursebot team is also gratefully acknowledged, including the members from the School of Nursing and the Department of Computer Science Intelligent Systems at the University of Pittsburgh  ...
