Autoencoder & Dialog Systems 2018


Notes:

An autoencoder is a artificial neural network used for learning a compressed representation for feature extraction. Between 2016 and 2018 there was a huge increase in the co-occurrence of autoencoder and dialog systems in academic papers, doubling each year.
