Ali Ahmadvand, Harshita Sahijwani, Jason Ingyu Choi, Eugene Agichtein
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Identifying the topic (domain) of each user's utterance in open-domain conversational systems is a crucial step for all subsequent language understanding and response tasks.  ...  To address this problem, we introduce ConCET: a Concurrent Entity-aware conversational Topic classifier, which incorporates entity-type information together with the utterance content features.  ...  The new proposed model, called ConCET, is an entity-aware topic classifier for open-domain conversational agents.  ...

Peter Hoffmann, Technische Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, Christian Martin Schmidt
For music analysis purposes, GENDY3 has been completely resynthesized.  ...  Synthesis in a new program called the "New GENDYN Program" which, in addition to "recomposing" GENDY3 in real time, makes it possible to inspect and control the algorithmic composition process, thereby opening  ...  The random walks in Xenakis' program also act as agents for chaos by folding and stretching.  ...
