A Comparative Study of Reinforcement Learning Techniques on Dialogue Management

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Adaptive Dialogue Systems are rapidly becoming part of our everyday lives. As they progress and adopt new technologies they become more intelligent and able to adapt better and faster to their environment. Research in this field is currently focused on how to achieve adaptation, and particularly on applying Reinforcement Learning (RL) techniques, so a comparative study of the related methods, such as this, is necessary. In this work we compare several standard and state of the art online RL algorithms that are used to train the dialogue manager in a dynamic environment, aiming to aid researchers / developers choose the appropriate RL algorithm for their system. This is the first work, to the best of our knowledge, to evaluate online RL algorithms on the dialogue problem and in a dynamic environment.
