Learning discourse-level diversity for neural dialog models using conditional variational autoencoders
T Zhao, R Zhao, M Eskenazi – arXiv preprint arXiv:1703.10960, 2017 – arxiv.org
Abstract: While recent neural encoder-decoder models have shown great promise in modeling open-domain conversations, they often generate dull and generic responses. Unlike past work that has focused on diversifying the output of the decoder at word-level to

Challenging Neural Dialogue Models with Natural Data: Memory Networks Fail on Incremental Phenomena
I Shalyminov, A Eshghi, O Lemon – arXiv preprint arXiv:1709.07840, 2017 – arxiv.org
Abstract: Natural, spontaneous dialogue proceeds incrementally on a word-by-word basis; and it contains many sorts of disfluency such as mid-utterance/sentence hesitations, interruptions, and self-corrections. But training data for machine learning approaches to

Iterative policy learning in end-to-end trainable task-oriented neural dialog models
