Utterance Retrieval based on Recurrent Surface Text Patterns

Abstract : This paper investigates the use of recurrent surface text patterns to represent and index open-domain dialogue utterances for a retrieval system that can be embedded in a conversational agent. This approach involves both the building of a database of such patterns by mining a corpus of written dialogic interactions, and the exploitation of this database in a generalised vector space model for utterance retrieval. It is a corpus-based, unsupervised, parameterless and language-independent process. Our study indicates that the proposed model performs objectively well comparatively to other retrieval models on a task of selection of dialogue examples derived from a large corpus of written dialogues.
