FreeTalky: Don't Be Afraid! Conversations Made Easier by a Humanoid Robot using Persona-based Dialogue

  title={FreeTalky: Don't Be Afraid! Conversations Made Easier by a Humanoid Robot using Persona-based Dialogue},
  author={Chanjun Park and Yoonna Jang and Seolhwa Lee and Sungjin Park and Heuiseok Lim},
We propose a deep learning-based foreign language learning platform, named FREETALKY, for people who experience anxiety dealing with foreign languages, by employing a humanoid robot NAO and various deep learning models. A persona-based dialogue system that is embedded in NAO provides an interesting and consistent multi-turn dialogue for users. Also, an grammar error correction system promotes improvement in grammar skills of the users. Thus, our system enables personalized learning based on…

Personalizing Dialogue Agents: I have a dog, do you have pets too?
This work collects data and train models tocondition on their given profile information; and information about the person they are talking to, resulting in improved dialogues, as measured by next utterance prediction.
Applying politeness maxims in social robotics polite dialogue
This paper introduces the politeness maxims and proposes its enhanced applicability in human-robot interaction to create polite dialogue, and presents a promising future for the synthesis of polite robot dialogue.
DIALOGPT : Large-Scale Generative Pre-training for Conversational Response Generation
It is shown that conversational systems that leverage DialoGPT generate more relevant, contentful and context-consistent responses than strong baseline systems.
ClovaCall: Korean Goal-Oriented Dialog Speech Corpus for Automatic Speech Recognition of Contact Centers
A new large-scale Korean call-based speech corpus under a goal-oriented dialog scenario from more than 11,000 people, i.e., ClovaCall corpus, which includes approximately 60,000 pairs of a short sentence and its corresponding spoken utterance in a restaurant reservation domain is introduced.
Computational Interpretations of the Gricean Maxims in the Generation of Referring Expressions
A recommended algorithm is described, along with a specification of the resources a host system must provide in order to make use of the algorithm, and an implementation used in the natural language generation component of the IDAS system.

BTS: Back TranScription for Speech-to-Text Post-Processor using Text-to-Speech-to-Text
Back TranScription (BTS) is proposed, a denoising-based method that can create parallel corpora without human labor that is highly effective in fixing non-trivial speech recognition errors such as mishandling foreign words.
