Human-Computer dialogue systems provide a natural language based interface between human and computers. They are becoming very hot research area in an intelligent accompanying robots, and so on. A Human-Computer dialogue system consists of three main domains called Natural Language Understanding (NLU), Dialogue Management (DM) and Natural Language Generation (NLG). Each of these area requires more research .Each area has been received, many improvements. The problem with the existing system is that it is built in traditional pipeline way, in which different areas are assembled sequentially, suffered from number of problems like error accumulation and expanding as well as domain transferring. Therefore, researchers on jointly exemplary several sub modules in one part or cross different parts have been prompted greatly in recent years, especially the rapid developments on deep neural networks based joint models. There is even a few works aiming to collaborate all subtasks of a dialogue system in a single model, namely end-to-end models. This session will introduces number active researcher who works on dialogue systems and gives a information on recent advances on variety subtasks at first, and then focuses on joint models for multiple subtasks of dialogues. We will introduce papers related to different joint models including integration of several subtasks inside NLU or NLG, jointly modeling cross NLG and DM, and jointly modeling through NLU, DM and NLG. Both advantages and problems of those joint models are discussed. We consider that the joint models, or end-to-end models, will be one important trend for developing Human-Computer dialogue systems.
Research Papers/Articles are energized on all subjects given below topics of interests, to empower interdisciplinary conversations of the most recent improvements in the field of Electrical, Electronics and Computer Engineering. All the Conference proceedings will be submitted to the IEEE Digital Explore library.
