Coherence of Off-Topic Response for a Virtual Character (bibtex)
by Artstein, Ron, Cannon, Jacob, Gandhe, Sudeep, Gerten, Jillian, Henderer, Joe, Leuski, Anton and Traum, David
Abstract:
We demonstrate three classes of off-topic responses which allow a virtual question-answering character to handle cases where it does not understand the user's input: ask for clarification, indicate misunderstanding, and move on with the conversation. While falling short of full dialogue management, a combination of such responses together with prompts to change the topic can improve overall dialogue coherence.
