Slot Filling & Chatbots 2019


Notes:

Approaches already exist allowing conversational slot filling of a structured query within a schema, in the field of spoken dialog systems. Traditional dialog systems can easily inject entities and facts into responses using slot-filling. It has been common practice to employ manually written semantic grammars for slot filling tasks for intent determination. Semantic slot filling is a common practice in dialog systems research that maintains coherence and state by extracting specifics and fitting them into categories. Frame semantics or distributional semantics may be used for slot filling in spoken dialogue systems.

In slot filling applications the complete dialog state is reduced to the state of a small number of slots that require to be filled. Alignment is explicit in slot filling. Position-aware attention and supervised data improve slot filling. Nuance GSL (Grammar Specification Language) utilizes the slot filling concept; for instance, when a grammar rule (in this case made of a clause – a unit of grammatical organization next below the sentence in rank) is hit during speech recognition, variables (slots) are filled with values. 

Knowledge-base population slot filling involves extracting relation information from documents. In slot filling, the task is to complete all known information about a given query entity, for instance search a document collection to fill in values for predefined slots (attributes) for a given entity. So, slots may represent concepts or attributes. Intent detection and slot filling are critical steps for many speech understanding and dialog systems.
