Dialogue system can be task or non-task-oriented. Task-oriented dialogue systems aim to accomplish specific tasks through interacting with human beings using natural languages (e.g., art-ticket booking systems) while non-task-oriented dialogue system focuses on generating complex, fluency, and engaging responses (Microsoft Xiaoice). Both types of dialogue systems have their own challenges and solutions. This talk will give an introduction to both types of dialogue systems and discussing the feasibility of unifying such two types of the system within one solution framework.
