  • Publication number: 20210050006
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method of responding to a conversational event. The method comprises enacting, by a conversational computing interface, an initial computer-executable plan based on a conversational event received by the conversational computing interface, wherein the initial computer-executable plan is configured to output an initial value based on the conversational event. The method further comprises selecting, by the conversational computing interface, an extended computer-executable plan based on determining that the initial value is insufficient for generating an extended description responsive to the conversational event. The method further comprises enacting, by the conversational computing interface, the extended computer-executable plan to output additional information beyond what the initial computer-executable plan is configured to output, the additional information sufficient for generating the extended description responsive to the conversational event.

  • Publication number: 20210043194
    Abstract: A method of configuring a conversational computing interface. The method comprises maintaining a branching dialogue representing a plurality of multi-turn conversations each including a plurality of turns, wherein a turn indicates one or both of a conversational computing interface action and a conversation event, the branching dialogue including a shared prefix of turns common to the plurality of multi-turn conversations and at least two different counterfactual branches descending from the shared prefix of turns, each different counterfactual branch including one or more descendent turns corresponding to a different multi-turn conversation of the plurality of multi-turn conversations.

  • Publication number: 20210027771
    Abstract: A method comprising recognizing a user utterance including an ambiguity. The method further comprises using a previously-trained code-generation machine to produce, from the user utterance, a data-flow program including a search-history function. The search-history function is configured to select a highest-confidence disambiguating concept from one or more candidate concepts stored in a context-specific dialogue history.

  • Publication number: 20210026735
    Abstract: A method, comprising recognizing a user utterance for processing. The method further comprises using a previously-trained code-generation machine to generate, from the user utterance, a data-flow program configured to produce a return value upon successful execution. The method further comprises beginning execution of the data-flow program. Responsive to reaching an error condition resulting from execution of the data-flow program, the method further comprises, prior to the data-flow program producing the return value, suspending execution of the data flow program. The method further comprises using the previously-trained code-generation machine to generate an error-handling data-flow program, wherein the error-handling data-flow program is configured to produce the return value; beginning execution of the error-handling data-flow program to produce the return value; and outputting the return value.
