Bayes risk-based dialogue management for document retrieval system with speech interface

Teruhisa Misu, Tatsuya Kawahara
2010 Speech Communication  
We propose an efficient dialogue management for an information navigation system based on a document knowledge base with a spoken dialogue interface.  ...  In this work, we formulate the optimization of the choices based on a unified criterion: Bayes risk, which is defined based on reward for correct information presentation and penalty for redundant turns  ...  "Dialogue Navigator for Kyoto City" is a document retrieval system with a spoken dialogue interface. The system can retrieve information from the above-mentioned document set.  ...

MultiDoc2Dial: Modeling Dialogues Grounded in Multiple Documents [article]

Song Feng and Siva Sankalp Patel and Hui Wan and Sachindra Joshi
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We also explore modeling the dialogue-based and document-based context in the dataset.  ...  Most previous works treat document-grounded dialogue modeling as a machine reading comprehension task based on a single given document or passage.  ...  • We present strong baseline approaches and evaluations for two tasks based on Multi-Doc2Dial dataset in hope to support future significant research effort in the direction.  ...

Instance-Based Generation for Interactive Restricted Domain Question Answering Systems [chapter]

Matthias Denecke, Hajime Tsukada
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we propose and compare two example-based methods for generation of information seeking questions.  ...  While template-based generation is appropriate in many cases (for example, task oriented spoken dialogue systems), interactive question answering systems require a more sophisticated approach.  ...  Second, since we are interested in replacing those content words that are specific to the retrieved dialogue with those specific to the current dialogue, we would like to incorporate some measure of informativeness  ...

Utterance Selection Based on Sentence Similarities and Dialogue Breakdown Detection on NTCIR-12 STC Task

Hiroaki Sugiyama
2016 NTCIR Conference on Evaluation of Information Access Technologies  
Our system retrieves tweets based on following two steps: first it retrieves tweets that resemble to input sentences, and then, it filters inappropriate tweets in terms of the dialogue flow naturalness  ...  The purpose of the task is to retrieve tweets that suits as responses of a chat-oriented dialogue system from a huge number of tweets pool.  ...  Our system retrieves tweets from a huge tweet pool with following the two steps: sentence similarity based retrieval and dialogue breakdown detection DBD based filtering.  ...

Sequence-to-Sequence Learning for Task-oriented Dialogue with Dialogue State Representation [article]

Haoyang Wen, Yijia Liu, Wanxiang Che, Libo Qin, Ting Liu
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Classic pipeline models for task-oriented dialogue system require explicit modeling the dialogue states and hand-crafted action spaces to query a domain-specific knowledge base.  ...  Conversely, sequence-to-sequence models learn to map dialogue history to the response in current turn without explicit knowledge base querying.  ...  Key representations are used for an attention-based value retrieval.  ...
