Toward Knowledge-Enriched Conversational Recommendation Systems

no code implementations NLP4ConvAI (ACL) 2022 Tong Zhang, Yong liu, Boyang Li, Peixiang Zhong, Chen Zhang, Hao Wang, Chunyan Miao

Conversational Recommendation Systems recommend items through language based interactions with users. In order to generate naturalistic conversations and effectively utilize knowledge graphs (KGs) containing background information, we propose a novel Bag-of-Entities loss, which encourages the generated utterances to mention concepts related to the item being recommended, such as the genre or director of a movie.
