Paper on Zero Shot Intent Classication using LSTMs accepted for publication at INTERSPEECH 2019!

Our paper on Zero Shot Intern Classification using LSTMs has been accepted for publication at INTERSPEECH 2019. In this paper we propose an LSTM-based encoder that can be used to map user utterances to dialog intents. We show how the LSTM-based method outperforms a DSSM on this task, both for zero shot and few shot intent classification.

Paper on Automatic Task Completion Flows from Web APIs accepted at SIGIR!

Our paper on Automatic Tasks Completion Flows from Web APIs was accepted as a short paper at SIGIR 2019. This paper, co-authored with Seyyed Hadi Hashemi and Imed Zitouni proposed a method for automatically creating task completion flows by chaining together Web APIs. Given a user query, it automatically constructs a flow by chaining together APIs and allowing data to flow from one API to the next. The order in which the APIs are chained is learned by a machine learning model, which generates a set of plans and then scores them by the likelihood of them leading to user satisfaction.
