Dialogue quality assessment is crucial for evaluating dialogue agents. An essential factor of high-quality dialogues is coherence - what makes dialogue utterances a whole. This paper proposes a novel dialogue coherence model trained in a hierarchical multi-task learning scenario where coherence assessment is the primary and the high-level task, and dialogue act prediction is the auxiliary and the low-level task. The results of our experiments for two benchmark dialogue corpora (i.e. SwitchBoard… CONTINUE READING
