LIHLITH - Learning to Interact with Humans by Lifelong Interaction with Humans
Auf einen Blick
The LIHLITH project is a ?fundamental pilot research project which introduces a new
lifelong learning framework for the interaction of humans and machines on specific
domains. A Lifelong Learning system learns different tasks sequentially, over time, getting
better at solving future related tasks based on past experience. LIHLITH will focus on
human-computer dialogue,? where each dialogue experience is used by the system to
learn to better interact, based on the success (or failure) of previous interactions. The key
insight is that the dialogue will be designed to produce a reward, allowing the ?chatbot
system to know whether the interaction was successful or not. The reward will be used to
train the domain and dialogue management modules of the chatbot, improving the
performance, and reducing the development cost, both on a single target domain but
specially when moving to new domains. The research will be evaluated on publicly
available benchmarks to allow comparison with other approaches in the state of the art.
When possible, systems will participate in international comparative/competitive
evaluations such as WOCHAT or SemEval. LIHLITH project will also develop and deliver
evaluation protocols and benchmarks to allow public comparison and reproducibility based
on crowdsourcing. The industrial partner will transfer the research into technology,
applying the lessons learnt to the development of ?chatbots for customer support.?
LIHLITH will rely on recent advance in multiple research disciplines, including, ?natural
language processing, knowledge induction, reinforcement learning, deep learning,
and lifelong learning?.
