CALL FORPAPERS 1stWorkshop on Conversational AI in Indian Languages (co-located with ICON2021)
SubmissionDeadline: November 15th, 2021
NaturalConversation between humans and machines similar to conversations between twohumans is considered a hallmark in intelligent systems. Conversational AI(Artificial Intelligence) is a key area of AI and it refers to technologies,such as chatbots or virtual agents, to which users can talk to as in by twohumans.
Most ofthe research and development done in this area is in English where the mediumof conversation is in the English language. There is very little work done inIndian languages and hardly any system developed where real time conversationis taking place.
Today conversational AI is not an interactive system but a transactional systemat best. By transactional system we mean that the system is navigated through aset of instructions which are numerals instead of actual conversations.Effective and efficient techniques for human-machine conversations are stillevolving.
There is an urgent need to come up with methods, technologies, and evaluationmetrics for chatbot/conversational systems research which uses an end-to-endconversation in Indian languages.
In this workshop we aim to bring together researchers working in the area ofConversational AI/chatbot developers, specifically addressing issues orproviding solutions in Indian languages, which is the need of the hour.
Papers are invited on substantial, original andunpublished research, also work in progress, authors must mention this in thepaper on all aspects of Conversational Artificial Intelligence, with a specialfocus on Indian languages. We alsowelcome other languages which are less resourced and are not researched up on.
