Weakly-Supervised Neural Response Selection from an Ensemble of Task-Specialised Dialogue Agents

05/06/2020 ∙ by Asir Saeed, et al. ∙ 5

Dialogue engines that incorporate different types of agents to converse with humans are popular. However, conversations are dynamic in the sense that a selected response will change the conversation on-the-fly, influencing the subsequent utterances in the conversation, which makes the response selection a challenging problem. We model the problem of selecting the best response from a set of responses generated by a heterogeneous set of dialogue agents by taking into account the conversational history, and propose a Neural Response Selection method. The proposed method is trained to predict a coherent set of responses within a single conversation, considering its own predictions via a curriculum training mechanism. Our experimental results show that the proposed method can accurately select the most appropriate responses, thereby significantly improving the user experience in dialogue systems.
