I am a 4th year Undergraduate Student majoring in Computer Science from BITS-Pilani (Goa).

I am completing my undergraduate thesis under the supervision of Dr. Marco Guerini. The topic of my thesis is “Neural Approaches toward domain independent Dialog systems.”

Summary of my thesis :


Today end-to-end dialog systems have shown promising results in the task oriented dialog domain.However we always face two challenges when dealing with such systems.

1. When training such system for a new domain (say, customer service for e-commerce company), we face a shortage of training data.

2. Such Dialog Systems are highly restricted in their respective domain i.e We can’t expect a restaurant reservation to purchase movie tickets. But we aim to develop such a system.

My thesis attempts to solve both these problems by exploring a neural net architecture (Based on Memory Networks) and Dialog Construction Pipeline that creates instant reliable training data for new domain with minimum effort.
