BoB: BERT Over BERT for Training Persona-based Dialogue Models from Limited Personalized Data

Haoyu Song, Yan Wang, Kaiyan Zhang, Wei-Nan Zhang, Ting Liu
2021 Proceedings of the 59th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics and the 11th International Joint Conference on Natural Language Processing (Volume 1: Long Papers)   unpublished
In this work, we show how the challenges can be addressed by disentangling persona-based dialogue generation into two sub-tasks with a novel BERTover-BERT (BoB) model.  ...  Although tremendous advancements have been brought, the limitedscale of annotated persona-dense data are still barriers towards training robust and consistent persona-based dialogue models.  ...  We thank all the anonymous reviewers for their helpful comments and suggestions.  ...
