Knowledge transfer between speakers for personalised dialogue management

Iñigo Casanueva, Thomas Hain, Heidi Christensen, Ricard Marxer, Phil Green
2015 Proceedings of the 16th Annual Meeting of the Special Interest Group on Discourse and Dialogue  
We propose a method which automatically selects the data to transfer by defining a similarity measure between speakers, and uses this measure to weight the influence of the data from each speaker in the  ...  Following this idea, a dialogue system designed for a single speaker can be initialised with data from other speakers, but if the dynamics of the speakers are very different the model will have a poor  ...  The authors would like to thank David Martínez for providing the i-vectors used in this paper.  ...

Coffee With a Hint of Data: Towards Using Data-Driven Approaches in Personalised Long-Term Interactions

Bahar Irfan, Mehdi Hellou, Tony Belpaeme
2021 Frontiers in Robotics and AI  
The experiments show that while data-driven approaches are suitable for generic task-oriented dialogue and real-time interactions, no model performs sufficiently well to be deployed in personalised long-term  ...  These are known to be challenging problems in machine learning, while they are trivial for rule-based approaches, creating a trade-off between flexibility and robustness.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors would like to thank Ghent University IDLab (Belgium) for access to the servers for the experiments, and Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris (France) for hosting the user  ...
