Converse, Focus and Guess – Towards Multi-Document Driven Dialogue [article]

Han Liu, Caixia Yuan, Xiaojie Wang, Yushu Yang, Huixing Jiang, Zhongyuan Wang
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We propose a novel task, Multi-Document Driven Dialogue (MD3), in which an agent can guess the target document that the user is interested in by leading a dialogue.  ...  Keeping guessing the target document in mind, it converses with the user conditioned on both document engagement and user feedback.  ...  The research is supported in part by the Natural Science Foundation of China (Grant No. 62076032) and National Key Research and Development Program of China (Grant No. 2020YFF0305302).  ...

Opponent Modeling in Negotiation Dialogues by Related Data Adaptation [article]

Kushal Chawla, Gale M. Lucas, Jonathan May, Jonathan Gratch
2022 arXiv   pre-print
In this work, we propose a ranker for identifying these priorities from negotiation dialogues. The model takes in a partial dialogue as input and predicts the priority order of the opponent.  ...  In a multi-issue negotiation, it involves inferring the relative importance that the opponent assigns to each issue under discussion, which is crucial for finding high-value deals.  ...  The views and conclusions contained in this document are those of the authors and should not be interpreted as representing the official policies, either expressed or implied, of the Army Research Office  ...

A Survey on Dialogue Systems: Recent Advances and New Frontiers [article]

Hongshen Chen, Xiaorui Liu, Dawei Yin, Jiliang Tang
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Dialogue systems have attracted more and more attention.  ...  In particular, we generally divide existing dialogue systems into task-oriented and non-task-oriented models, then detail how deep learning techniques help them with representative algorithms and finally  ...  to build data-driven, open-domain conversation systems between humans and computers.  ...

Image-Grounded Conversations: Multimodal Context for Natural Question and Response Generation [article]

Nasrin Mostafazadeh, Chris Brockett, Bill Dolan, Michel Galley, Jianfeng Gao, Georgios P. Spithourakis, Lucy Vanderwende
2017 arXiv   pre-print
In human evaluation, the gap between human performance and that of both neural and retrieval architectures suggests that multi-modal IGC presents an interesting challenge for dialogue research.  ...  IGC falls on the continuum between chit-chat and goal-directed conversation models, where visual grounding constrains the topic of conversation to event-driven utterances.  ...  The ICG Dataset The majority of the available corpora for developing data-driven dialogue systems contain taskoriented and goal-driven conversational data (Serban et al., 2015b) .  ...

ConvAbuse: Data, Analysis, and Benchmarks for Nuanced Abuse Detection in Conversational AI [article]

Amanda Cercas Curry, Gavin Abercrombie, Verena Rieser
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We present the first English corpus study on abusive language towards three conversational AI systems gathered "in the wild": an open-domain social bot, a rule-based chatbot, and a task-based system.  ...  We find that the distribution of abuse is vastly different compared to other commonly used datasets, with more sexually tinted aggression towards the virtual persona of these systems.  ...  We leave more focused approaches, like multi-task learning, for future work.  ...

2020 Sustainability  
In this study, we shift the focus towards the convener by considering a case of a 'mission-driven convener', an NPO that initiates CSPs as a strategy to realize its own sustainability objectives.  ...  These strategies comprise productively combining certification-driven efforts with CSPs, combining process and outcomes of CSPs, and drawing on cross-level dynamics derived from outsourcing of convening  ...  Earlier versions of this article were presented at several conferences and workshops, including EGOS (Tallinn, 2018), the Academy of Management Meeting (Boston, MA, 2019) and at the Business & Society  ...
