Intent Detection

Intent Detection is a vital component of any task-oriented conversational system. In order to understand the user’s current goal, the system must leverage its intent detector to classify the user’s utterance (provided in varied natural language) into one of several predefined classes, that is, intents. However, the performance of intent detection has been hindered by the data scarcity issue, as it is non-trivial to collect sufficient examples for new intents. How to effectively identify user intents in few-shot learning has become popular.
