Yesterday, I was in a hurry to pack things, as I had to fly to another country on business. I knew that the flight would be long and with transfers. I had very little time and I did not know what to do: after all, you need to pack a suitcase, find out what the weather will be on arrival, choose books, music, movies for the road! Besides, my playlist hasn't been updated for a long time. What might you do during the flight? And I decided to turn to our DreamBot. After all, Denis (a member of our team) has upgraded the retrieval skill (RS) which covers all these issues, and maybe even more.
RS means that the search for the correct answer is carried out from the set of available answers. That is, there is a certain number of prepared answers and the task is to find the most appropriate answer in terms of meaning. This skill includes topics about books, entertainment, fashion, movies, music, politics, science technology, and sport. Why are only these topics chose? According to our review, they are the most popular among users. Besides, we used data from the Topic Chat dataset, where these topics were had been already set. The dataset was developed for teams competing in the Alexa Socialbot Prize Grand Challenge 3. The Topical Chat dataset consists of more than 210,000 utterances (over 4,100,000 words), which makes it the largest social conversation and knowledge dataset publicly available to the research community, supports the publication of high quality, repeatable research.
