VOILA: An Optimised Dialogue System for Interactively Learning Visually-Grounded Word Meanings (Demonstration System)

WS 2017  ·  Yanchao Yu, Arash Eshghi, Oliver Lemon ·

We present VOILA: an optimised, multi-modal dialogue agent for interactive learning of visually grounded word meanings from a human user. VOILA is: (1) able to learn new visual categories interactively from users from scratch; (2) trained on real human-human dialogues in the same domain, and so is able to conduct natural spontaneous dialogue; (3) optimised to find the most effective trade-off between the accuracy of the visual categories it learns and the cost it incurs to users... VOILA is deployed on Furhat, a human-like, multi-modal robot head with back-projection of the face, and a graphical virtual character. read more
