Dialogue Session Segmentation by Embedding-Enhanced TextTiling [article]

Yiping Song, Lili Mou, Rui Yan, Li Yi, Zinan Zhu, Xiaohua Hu, Ming Zhang
2016 arXiv   pre-print
We propose an embedding-enhanced TextTiling approach, inspired by the observation that conversation utterances are highly noisy, and that word embeddings provide a robust way of capturing semantics.  ...  However, it is unwise to track all previous utterances in the current session as not all of them are equally important. In this paper, we address the problem of session segmentation.  ...  In our study, we prefer the simple yet effective TextTiling approach for open-domain dialogue session segmentation, but enhance it with modern advances of word embeddings, which are robust in capturing  ...

Improving Unsupervised Dialogue Topic Segmentation with Utterance-Pair Coherence Scoring [article]

Linzi Xing, Giuseppe Carenini
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Dialogue topic segmentation is critical in several dialogue modeling problems. However, popular unsupervised approaches only exploit surface features in assessing topical coherence among utterances.  ...  In this work, we address this limitation by leveraging supervisory signals from the utterance-pair coherence scoring task.  ...  This research was supported by the Language & Speech Innovation Lab of Cloud BU, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.  ...

A Weakly Supervised Method for Topic Segmentation and Labeling in Goal-oriented Dialogues via Reinforcement Learning

Ryuichi Takanobu, Minlie Huang, Zhongzhou Zhao, Fenglin Li, Haiqing Chen, Xiaoyan Zhu, Liqiang Nie
2018 Proceedings of the Twenty-Seventh International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
We propose a reinforcement learning (RL) method for topic segmentation and labeling in goal-oriented dialogues, which aims to detect topic boundaries among dialogue utterances and assign topic labels to  ...  Topic structure analysis plays a pivotal role in dialogue understanding.  ...  Embedding enhanced TextTiling works much better since word embedding can well capture the semantic similarity.  ...
