MIME: MIMicking Emotions for Empathetic Response Generation

This work argues that empathetic responses often mimic the emotion of the user to a varying degree, depending on its positivity or negativity and content, and introduces stochasticity into the emotion mixture that yields emotionally more varied emPathetic responses than the previous work.

MoEL: Mixture of Empathetic Listeners

A novel end-to-end approach for modeling empathy in dialogue systems: Mixture of Empathetic Listeners (MoEL), which outperforms multitask training baseline in terms of empathy, relevance, and fluency.

EmpDG: Multi-resolution Interactive Empathetic Dialogue Generation

A multi-resolution adversarial model – EmpDG is proposed, to generate more empathetic responses and an interactive adversarial learning framework which exploits the user feedback, to identify whether the generated responses evoke emotion perceptivity in dialogues.

Emotional Chatting Machine: Emotional Conversation Generation with Internal and External Memory

This paper proposes Emotional Chatting Machine (ECM), the first work that addresses the emotion factor in large-scale conversation generation using three new mechanisms that respectively models the high-level abstraction of emotion expressions by embedding emotion categories.

Generating Responses with a Specific Emotion in Dialog

This work proposes an emotional dialogue system (EmoDS) that can generate the meaningful responses with a coherent structure for a post, and meanwhile express the desired emotion explicitly or implicitly within a unified framework.

Towards Empathetic Open-domain Conversation Models: A New Benchmark and Dataset

This work proposes a new benchmark for empathetic dialogue generation and EmpatheticDialogues, a novel dataset of 25k conversations grounded in emotional situations, and presents empirical comparisons of dialogue model adaptations forEmpathetic responding, leveraging existing models or datasets without requiring lengthy re-training of the full model.

MojiTalk: Generating Emotional Responses at Scale

This paper collects a large corpus of Twitter conversations that include emojis in the response and investigates several conditional variational autoencoders training on these conversations, which allow us to use emojes to control the emotion of the generated text.

Emotions from Text: Machine Learning for Text-based Emotion Prediction

This paper explores the text-based emotion prediction problem empirically, using supervised machine learning with the SNoW learning architecture to classify the emotional affinity of sentences in the narrative domain of children's fairy tales, for subsequent usage in appropriate expressive rendering of text-to-speech synthesis.

CAiRE: An End-to-End Empathetic Chatbot

This system adapts TransferTransfo (Wolf et al., 2019) learning approach that fine-tunes a large-scale pre-trained language model with multi-task objectives: response language modeling, response prediction and dialogue emotion detection.

The Design and Implementation of XiaoIce, an Empathetic Social Chatbot

This article describes the development of Microsoft XiaoIce, the most popular social chatbot in the world, and shows how XiaoIce dynamically recognizes human feelings and states, understands user intent, and responds to user needs throughout long conversations.
