【講題】Exploring Foundation Models for Conversation AI
【摘要】 Spoken dialogue systems have become crucial to build a wide range of virtual assistants for customer service, entertainment and health. These systems are composed of multiple components including automatic speech recognition, natural language understanding, dialogue manager, natural language generation, and text-to-speech, which involve delicate multi-modal machine learning. This talk will focus on state-of-the-art foundation models in individual components and address how the pre-trained models are utilized to re-shape the architecture via adapters and re-function the foundation via prompting and reprogramming. We will also explore the challenges and opportunities through integration of these components into a comprehensive conversation system.
