Event description

Description

ABSTRACT

These days, dialogue systems are virtually everywhere — from the auto-informer system when making a call to a bank, to the mobile assistance (Siri/Cortana). As conversation is a natural way for people to get information, dialogue system can be applied widely.

Dialogue systems can be classified as task-oriented or as general-purpose. This talk will first give an introduction on both types, then introduce the recent research outcome, and finally discuss the feasibility of unifying two such types of system.
