Domain Complexity and Policy Learning in Task-Oriented Dialogue Systems [chapter]

Alexandros Papangelis, Stefan Ultes, Yannis Stylianou
2018 Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering  
In the present paper, we conduct a comparative evaluation of a multitude of information-seeking domains, using two well-known but fundamentally different algorithms for policy learning: GP-SARSA and DQN  ...  Our results indicate several main domain characteristics that play an important role in policy learning performance in terms of task success rates.  ...  Using statistical methods for dialogue policy learning (and consequently dialogue management) has prevailed in the state of the art for many years.  ...

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 authors would like to thank David Martínez for providing the iVectors used in this paper.  ...

DialogLM: Pre-trained Model for Long Dialogue Understanding and Summarization

Ming Zhong, Yang Liu, Yichong Xu, Chenguang Zhu, Michael Zeng
For a dialogue, it corrupts a window of text with dialogue-inspired noise, and guides the model to reconstruct this window based on the content of the remaining conversation.  ...  Considering the nature of long conversations, we propose a window-based denoising approach for generative pre-training.  ...  Acknowledgements We thank Shaohan Huang for providing guidance on pretraining UniLM-CP.  ...

Challenges of Building an Intelligent Chatbot

Anna Chizhik, Yulia Zherebtsova
2020 International Conference "Internet and Modern Society"  
The retrieval-based model, which achieved the best dialogue performance, is proposed. Furthermore, we present the datasets collected for the purpose of this paper.  ...  However, building an intelligent chatbot is challenging as it requires spoken language understanding, dialogue context awareness and human-like aspects demonstration.  ...  One of the most basic vectorization methods is the statistical measure TF-IDF [22] , it determines the word importance to the document in a text collection.  ...

Using phone features to improve dialogue state tracking generalisation to unseen states

Iñigo Casanueva, Thomas Hain, Mauro Nicolao, Phil Green
2016 Proceedings of the 17th Annual Meeting of the Special Interest Group on Discourse and Dialogue  
In a slot-based dialogue system, dialogue states lie in discrete space where distances between states cannot be computed.  ...  Therefore, the model parameters to track states unseen in the training data can only be estimated from more general statistics, under the assumption that every dialogue state will have the same underlying  ...  Dialogue corpus One of the main problems in dialogue management research is the lack of annotated dialogue corpora. The corpora released for the first three DSTCs aimed to mitigate this problem.  ...

Design for an Interactive Television Advertising System

Jong Woo Kim, Stephen Du
2006 Proceedings of the 39th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS'06)  
Most information systems research in the interactive television domain focuses on improving methods for choosing program content.  ...  A proof-of-concept prototype based on this design was implemented and validated in a pilot test. Implications for the advertising industry and for future research are discussed.  ...  Based on that data, the dialogue engine selects agents and dialogue scripts targeted for specific viewers. Then this component inserts agent and script with voice at the end of AD.  ...
