Improving Grounded Language Understanding in a Collaborative Environment by Interacting with Agents Through Help Feedback

Many approaches to Natural Language Processing (NLP) tasks often treat them as single-step problems, where an agent receives an instruction, executes it, and is evaluated based on the final outcome. However, human language is inherently interactive, as evidenced by the back-and-forth nature of human conversations. In light of this, we posit that human-AI collaboration should also be interactive, with humans monitoring the work of AI agents and providing feedback that the agent can understand and utilize. Further, the AI agent should be able to detect when it needs additional information and proactively ask for help. Enabling this scenario would lead to more natural, efficient, and engaging human-AI collaborations. In this work, we explore these directions using the challenging task defined by the IGLU competition, an interactive grounded language understanding task in a MineCraft-like world. We explore multiple types of help players can give to the AI to guide it and analyze the impact of this help in AI behavior, resulting in performance improvements.
