Exploiting distance based similarity in topic models for user intent detection

Asli Celikyilmaz, Dilek Hakkani-Tur, Gokhan Tur, Ashley Fidler, Dustin Hillard
2011 2011 IEEE Workshop on Automatic Speech Recognition & Understanding  
One of the main components of spoken language understanding is intent detection, which allows user goals to be identified.  ...  We demonstrate that our model outperforms standard topic models based on bag-of-words assumption.  ...  Without an intent bearing n-gram determiner, the intent detection task becomes intrinsically challenging, not only because there are no a priori constraints on what the user might say, but also because  ...

Alquist 2.0: Alexa Prize Socialbot Based on Sub-Dialogue Models [article]

Jan Pichl, Petr Marek, Jakub Konrád, Martin Matulík, Jan Šedivý
2020 arXiv   pre-print
The sub-dialogues can be triggered according to the topic hierarchy or a user intent which allows the bot to create a unique experience during each session.  ...  We introduce a system leveraging ontology-based topic structure called topic nodes.  ...  Note that a new sub-dialogue is triggered based on the entity and intent only if the topic switch is detected (based on the contextual data) as described in subsection 3.4.  ...

The essence of time

Stewart Whiting
2012 Proceedings of the 35th international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '12  
Key challenges to be addressed in this work include: a suitable source and method for event detection and tracking, an intent-aware ranking approach and an evaluation methodology.  ...  As users become exposed to this information, time plays a central role in prompting both information authorship and seeking activities.  ...  We propose an evaluation methodology based on query-log mining and crowdsourcing for on-going relevance assessment.  ...

Knowledge Discovery from Big Data for Intrusion Detection Using LDA

Jingwei Huang, Zbigniew Kalbarczyk, David M. Nicol
2014 2014 IEEE International Congress on Big Data  
We identify the "hidden" patterns of operations conducted by both normal users and malicious users from a large volume of network/systems logs, by mapping this problem to the topic modeling problem and  ...  This new approach potentially completes the strength of signature-based and anomaly-based methods.  ...  What a user is trying to do is unknown to the security monitoring system; however, although a single event does not reveal the user's intent, a collection of logged events may reveal the intent.  ...

An algorithm for analyzing personalized online commercial intention

Derek Hao Hu, Qiang Yang, Ying Li
2008 Proceedings of the 2nd International Workshop on Data Mining and Audience Intelligence for Advertising - ADKDD '08  
In this paper, we present a novel algorithm, which we name as POINT, for the Personalized Onlinecommercial INTention detection based on a skip-chain conditional random field model.  ...  The only existing research work, as far as we know, has been done to automatically detect online commercial intention purely based on the issued queries, without considering the Web user's information.  ...  In [11] , user goals, or user interests are estimated from the user's clickthrough histories, based on the Topic-Sensitive PageRank scores of these pages.  ...

News Navigation System Based on Proactive Dialogue Strategy [chapter]

Koichiro Yoshino, Tatsuya Kawahara
2015 Natural Language Dialog Systems and Intelligent Assistants  
An experimental result shows that the proposed system based on POMDP and user focus tracking can interact with users effectively by selecting the most appropriate dialogue modules.  ...  It is composed of several modules that interact with users in different manners. Both the system and the user can take an initiative of dialogue depending on the specification of the user interest.  ...  The dialogue manager selects a module (ac-tion decision) based on an input of a user intention.  ...

Domain-Specific Modeling of User Knowledge in Informational Search Sessions

Rui Tang, Ran Yu, Markus Rokicki, Ralph Ewerth, Stefan Dietze
2021 International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management  
Users frequently search on the Web to fulfill information needs with learning intent. In this context, usefulness of the search results depends strongly on the knowledge state of the user.  ...  However, the impact of knowledge domains of the search topics on a user's learning process have not been adequately explored.  ...  Informational search sessions involve an inherent learning intent, i.e. the desire of a user to acquire knowledge or information with respect to a particular topic, assumed to be present on one or more  ...

2015 Proceedings of the 38th International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval - SIGIR '15  
Our new classifier identifies the closest topic for each unseen tweet, based on those topics identified in the training data.  ...  We show that the views communicated on these topics can inform us of the individuals' voting intentions ("Yes" vs. "No").  ...  We propose a technique to analyse the voting intentions of users, based on data mining and machine learning approaches.  ...

Luca Maria Aiello, Debora Donato, Umut Ozertem, Filippo Menczer
2011 Proceedings of the 20th ACM international conference on Information and knowledge management - CIKM '11  
Our method extracts topics from the query log by merging missions, i.e., activity fragments that express a coherent user intent, on the basis of their topical affinity.  ...  It can also summarize topically-coherent missions that occur far away from each other, thus enabling a more compact user profiling on a topical basis.  ...  user intent.  ...

Active Subtopic Detection in Multitopic Data

Benjamin Bergner, Georg Krempl
2016 International Conference on Knowledge Management and Knowledge Technologies  
Each approach is evaluated based on the number of subtopics that are found in the same predefined, closed topic (countries).  ...  For the task of detecting subtopics with user guidance, clustering by intent (CBI) has recently been proposed. However, this approach is limited to single-topic environments.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank Andreas Nürnberger, Daniel Kottke, and George Forman for insightful discussions on this topic.  ...
