Do We Need Online NLU Tools?

11/19/2020 ∙ by Petr Lorenc, et al. ∙ 0

The intent recognition is an essential algorithm of any conversational AI application. It is responsible for the classification of an input message into meaningful classes. In many bot development platforms, we can configure the NLU pipeline. Several intent recognition services are currently available as an API, or we choose from many open-source alternatives. However, there is no comparison of intent recognition services and open-source algorithms. Many factors make the selection of the right approach to the intent recognition challenging in practice. In this paper, we suggest criteria to choose the best intent recognition algorithm for an application. We present a dataset for evaluation. Finally, we compare selected public NLU services with selected open-source algorithms for intent recognition.
