Interrogating the Black Box: Transparency through Information-Seeking Dialogues [article]

Andrea Aler Tubella, Andreas Theodorou, Juan Carlos Nieves
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Overall, we argue that the introduced formal dialogue framework opens many avenues both in the area of compliance checking and in the analysis of properties of opaque systems.  ...  We propose to construct an investigator agent to query a learning agent -- the suspect agent -- to investigate its adherence to a given ethical policy in the context of an information-seeking dialogue,  ...  Dialogues will be composed of moves in an ordered manner. An intitator agent will open a dialogue by setting a topic. Then, other agents will reply with arguments related to the topic.  ...

Modeling and Utilizing User's Internal State in Movie Recommendation Dialogue [article]

Takashi Kodama, Ribeka Tanaka, Sadao Kurohashi
2020 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we model the UIS in dialogues, taking movie recommendation dialogues as examples, and construct a dialogue system that changes its response based on the UIS.  ...  Such an intelligent dialogue system should estimate the user's internal state (UIS) in dialogues and change its response appropriately according to the estimation result.  ...  In text-dialogues, Inaba and Takahashi (2018) estimate the interest level in 24 topics during chatting dialogues between humans.  ...
