Dialog control in a natural language system

Michael Gerlach, Helmut Horacek
1989 Proceedings of the fourth conference on European chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics -   unpublished
In this paper a method for controlling the dialog in a natural language (NL) system is presented.  ...  Knowledge about the state of the dialog is represented in a dedicated language and changes of this state are described by a compact set of rules.  ...  • The two agents relevant in a dialog system are the USER and the SYSTEM. In addition, we use the notion 'mutual knowledge'.  ...

Modeling complex spoken dialog

H. Dybkjaer, L. Dybkjaer
2004 Computer  
A customized dialog language, evolved from building an actual system, uses core patterns that modelers can adapt to most applications.  ...  Increasing task complexity is challenging the models that underlie spoken dialog systems.  ...  For the FAQ SDS dialog model design, our options were to use a natural language model or a combination of the menu and natural language models.  ...

Few-shot Natural Language Generation for Task-Oriented Dialog [article]

Baolin Peng, Chenguang Zhu, Chunyuan Li, Xiujun Li, Jinchao Li, Michael Zeng, Jianfeng Gao
2020 arXiv   pre-print
As a crucial component in task-oriented dialog systems, the Natural Language Generation (NLG) module converts a dialog act represented in a semantic form into a response in natural language.  ...  To this end, we present FewShotWoz, the first NLG benchmark to simulate the few-shot learning setting in task-oriented dialog systems. Further, we develop the SC-GPT model.  ...  In a typical task-oriented dialog system, the Natural Language Generation (NLG) module plays a crucial role: it converts a system action (e.g., often specified in a semantic form selected by a dialog policy  ...
