Abstract: In this talk, I will describe the status of the dialogue research in the NLP community by providing the research background, a survey of available resources, and giving key insights to the application of state-of-the-art dialogue methodology into industry-scale systems. Despite the phenomenal potential of deep learning methods in this sector, very few of these approaches are production-ready. I will walk through these approaches and summarise their pros and cons.
