Efficient Dialogue State Tracking by Selectively Overwriting Memory [article]

Sungdong Kim, Sohee Yang, Gyuwan Kim, Sang-Woo Lee
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Recent works in dialogue state tracking (DST) focus on an open vocabulary-based setting to resolve scalability and generalization issues of the predefined ontology-based approaches.  ...  Our method decomposes DST into two sub-tasks and guides the decoder to focus only on one of the tasks, thus reducing the burden of the decoder.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors would like to thank the members of Clova AI for proofreading this manuscript.  ...
