Bridging the gap between dialogue management and dialogue models

Weiqun Xu, Bo Xu, Taiyi Huang, Hairong Xia
2002 Proceedings of the 3rd SIGdial workshop on Discourse and dialogue -  
Why do few working spoken dialogue systems make use of dialogue models in their dialogue management? We find out the causes and propose a generic dialogue model.  ...  It promises to bridge the gap between practical dialogue management and (pattern-based) dialogue model through integrating interaction patterns with the underling tasks and modeling interaction patterns  ...  Acknowledgments The work described in this paper was partly supported by the National Key Fundamental Research Program (the 973 Program) of China under the grant G19980300504 and the National Natural Science  ...

Multi-turn QA

Martino Mensio, Giuseppe Rizzo, Maurizio Morisio
2018 Companion of the The Web Conference 2018 on The Web Conference 2018 - WWW '18  
Generally, a QA system is designed to provide an answer to a specific question once (so-called single turn) and state-of-the-art systems reach nowadays robust performance in such a scenario.  ...  In this paper, we investigate and experiment a multi-turn QA system that is suited to work given a particular domain of knowledge and configurable goals.  ...  This section studies and elaborates how there has been a split of conversational systems, one towards rich interrogation and others towards more structured dialogues, emphasizing the differences and common  ...

Towards Generalized Models for Task-oriented Dialogue Modeling on Spoken Conversations [article]

Ruijie Yan, Shuang Peng, Haitao Mi, Liang Jiang, Shihui Yang, Yuchi Zhang, Jiajun Li, Liangrui Peng, Yongliang Wang, Zujie Wen
2022 arXiv   pre-print
This paper presents our approach to build generalized models for the Knowledge-grounded Task-oriented Dialogue Modeling on Spoken Conversations Challenge of DSTC-10.  ...  Building robust and general dialogue models for spoken conversations is challenging due to the gap in distributions of spoken and written data.  ...  Task Description and Our Approach Task-oriented dialogue systems provide information to or complete actions for users through a natural language dialogue flow.  ...

Speech production in human-machine dialogue: A natural language generation perspective [chapter]

Brigitte Grote, Eli Hagen, Adelheit Stein, Elke Teich
1997 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We argue that in order to assign appropriate intonation contours in speech producing systems, it is vital to acknowledge the diversity of functions that intonation ful lls and to account for communicative  ...  This article discusses speech production in dialogue from the perspective of natural language generation, focusing on the selection of appropriate intonation.  ...  These initiating moves and the responding move Inform have a task-oriented function in that they change the semantic context (cf.  ...

Preliminary Prosodic and Gestural Characteristics of Instructing Acts in Polish Task-Oriented Dialogues [chapter]

Maciej Karpiński
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Realisations of the instructing acts extracted from a corpus of task-oriented dialogues are analysed in terms of their syntactic structure, prosodic properties and accompanying gestures.  ...  The syntactic structures found in the material are similar to those found in earlier studies on map task dialogues. Deictic vocabulary is more frequent in gesture-supported instructions.  ...  Sequential occurrence of dialogue acts in Polish task-oriented dialogues was studied by Karpinski [25] .  ...

Conversational AI over Military Scenarios Using Intent Detection and Response Generation

Hsiu-Min Chuang, Ding-Wei Cheng
2022 Applied Sciences  
In this study, the military training task was when soldiers sought information via a conversational agent during the mission.  ...  This work focused on developing conversational systems based on the Chinese corpus over military scenarios.  ...  Military-domain task-oriented conversational systems can be divided into three types according to their mode of interaction: voice-type, text-type, and interactive interface-type systems.  ...

An OpenCCG-Based Approach to Question Generation from Concepts [chapter]

Markus M. Berg, Amy Isard, Johanna D. Moore
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This is the basis for realising adaptive, user-tailored, and human-like system questions in dialogue systems.  ...  In this paper we present a new approach to the generation of system questions by only defining basic concepts.  ...  In this paper we focus on task-oriented dialogue systems. This class comprises question-answering-, command-, and information-seeking/booking systems [16] .  ...

An analysis of prosodic information for the recognition of dialogue acts in a multimodal corpus in Mexican Spanish

Sergio R. Coria, Luis A. Pineda
2009 Computer Speech and Language  
10 This paper presents empirical results of an analysis on the role of prosody in the recognition of dialogue acts and utter-11 ance mood in a practical dialogue corpus in Mexican Spanish.  ...  The work is configured as a series of machine-learning 12 experimental conditions in which models are created by using intonational and other data as predictors and dialogue 13 act tagging data as targets  ...  Task oriented or practical dialogues 268 is one class that provides a suitable framework as the number and complexity of their DA types is lower than 269 in other classes and because real-world applications  ...

Phrase-final rises as a prosodic feature in wh-questions in Swedish human–machine dialogue

David House
2005 Speech Communication  
The distribution of the rises in the material is examined and evidence relating to the final rise as a signal of a social interaction oriented dialogue act is gathered from the distribution.  ...  these rises may have in signalling dialogue acts and speaker attitude over and beyond an information question.  ...  This work has also been supported in part by a grant from the Swedish Research Council (VR) to the project: ''Boundaries and groupings-the structuring of speech in different communicative situations''  ...

Miscommunication Recovery in Physically Situated Dialogue

Matthew Marge, Alexander Rudnicky
2015 Proceedings of the 16th Annual Meeting of the Special Interest Group on Discourse and Dialogue  
We describe an empirical study that crowdsourced human-authored recovery strategies for various problems encountered in physically situated dialogue.  ...  The purpose was to investigate the strategies that people use in response to requests that are referentially ambiguous or impossible to execute.  ...  Rieser and Moore (2005) found that in task-oriented human-human dialogues, clarification requests aim to be as efficient as possible; they are mostly partially formed.  ...

Studying Up Machine Learning Data: Why Talk About Bias When We Mean Power? [article]

Milagros Miceli, Julian Posada, Tianling Yang
2021 arXiv   pre-print
This way, we highlight the need for dialogue and cooperation in three areas: data quality, data work, and data documentation.  ...  In this commentary, we propose moving the research focus beyond bias-oriented framings by adopting a power-aware perspective to "study up" ML datasets.  ...  These questions could shift the perspective because they interrogate privileged and naturalized worldviews encoded in data and systems that (re)produce the status quo.  ...

Guillaume Dubuisson Duplessis, Alexandre Pauchet, Nathalie Chaignaud, Jean-Philippe Kotowicz
2015 2015 IEEE 27th International Conference on Tools with Artificial Intelligence (ICTAI)  
In this article, we show how empirically specified dialogue games can be employed on both interpretative and generative levels of dialogue management.  ...  We show that our library of dialogue games can be used into DOGMA to generate fragments of dialogue that are strongly coherent from a human perspective.  ...  All in all, we formed a database of task-oriented dialogue games available to an interactive agent.  ...
