COOKIE: A Dataset for Conversational Recommendation over Knowledge Graphs in E-commerce

  title={COOKIE: A Dataset for Conversational Recommendation over Knowledge Graphs in E-commerce},
  author={Zuohui Fu and Yikun Xian and Yaxin Zhu and Yongfeng Zhang and Gerard de Melo},
In this work, we present a new dataset for conversational recommendation over knowledge graphs in e-commerce platforms called COOKIE. The dataset is constructed from an Amazon review corpus by integrating both user-agent dialogue and custom knowledge graphs for recommendation. Specifically, we first construct a unified knowledge graph and extract key entities between user--product pairs, which serve as the skeleton of a conversation. Then we simulate conversations mirroring the human coarse-to…

Clustering of Conversational Bandits for User Preference Learning and Elicitation
This paper proposes a clustering of conversational bandits algorithm that effectively generates meaningful coarse-to-fine grained key-terms and performs as well as or better than the state-of-the-art baseline.
Towards Retrieval-based Conversational Recommendation
It is suggested that retrieval-based approaches should be considered an alternative or complement to language generation approaches and design and evaluate a novel technique for response retrieval and ranking.
PROCAT: Product Catalogue Dataset for Implicit Clustering, Permutation Learning and Structure Prediction

Advances and Challenges in Conversational Recommender Systems: A Survey
A systematic review of the techniques used in current conversational recommender systems and summarizes the key challenges of developing CRSs into five directions: Question-based user preference elicitation, multi-turn conversational recommendation strategies, dialogue understanding and generation, evaluation and user simulation, and some future challenges and opportunities.
EXACTA: Explainable Column Annotation
This work proposes a new approach called EXACTA, which conducts multi-hop knowledge graph reasoning using inverse reinforcement learning to find a path from a column to a potential target label while ensuring both annotation performance and explainability.
Efficient Non-Sampling Knowledge Graph Embedding
The basic idea is to consider all of the negative instances in the KG for model learning, and thus to avoid negative sampling, and the framework can be applied to square-loss based knowledge graph embedding models or models whose loss can be converted to a square loss.
Faithfully Explainable Recommendation via Neural Logic Reasoning
This work proposes neural logic reasoning for explainable recommendation (LOGER) by drawing on interpretable logical rules to guide the path-reasoning process for explanation generation and demonstrates the effectiveness of the method in delivering high-quality recommendations as well as ascertaining the faithfulness of the derived explanation.

OpenDialKG: Explainable Conversational Reasoning with Attention-based Walks over Knowledge Graphs
This work proposes the DialKG Walker model, a conversational reasoning model that learns the symbolic transitions of dialog contexts as structured traversals over KG, and predicts natural entities to introduce given previous dialog contexts via a novel domain-agnostic, attention-based graph path decoder.
Conversational Recommender System
This work proposes to integrate research in dialog systems and recommender systems into a novel and unified deep reinforcement learning framework to build a personalized conversational recommendation agent that optimizes a per session based utility function.
