Towards the Automatic Generation of Conversational Interfaces to Facilitate the Exploration of Tabular Data

Marcos Gomez, Jordi Cabot, Robert Clarisó

Tabular data is the most common format to publish and exchange structured data online. A clear example is the growing number of open data portals published by all types of public administrations. However, exploitation of these data sources is currently limited to technical people able to programmatically manipulate and digest such data. As an alternative, we propose the use of chatbots to offer a conversational interface to facilitate the exploration of tabular data sources. With our approach, any regular citizen can benefit and leverage them. Moreover, our chatbots are not manually created: instead, they are automatically generated from the data source itself thanks to the instantiation of a configurable collection of conversation patterns.
