Domain State Tracking for a Simplified Dialogue System

Hyunmin Jeon, Gary Geunbae Lee

Task-oriented dialogue systems aim to help users achieve their goals in specific domains. Recent neural dialogue systems use the entire dialogue history for abundant contextual information accumulated over multiple conversational turns. However, the dialogue history becomes increasingly longer as the number of turns increases, thereby increasing memory usage and computational costs. In this paper, we present DoTS (Domain State Tracking for a Simplified Dialogue System), a task-oriented dialogue system that uses a simplified input context instead of the entire dialogue history. However, neglecting the dialogue history can result in a loss of contextual information from previous conversational turns. To address this issue, DoTS tracks the domain state in addition to the belief state and uses it for the input context. Using this simplified input, DoTS improves the inform rate and success rate by 1.09 points and 1.24 points, respectively, compared to the previous state-of-the-art model on MultiWOZ, which is a well-known benchmark.
