Title: Neural Models for Interactive Dialogue Systems

Reinforcement learning provides a rich framework to cast the problem of learning a dialogue strategy for conversational AI agents. In this talk I will present recent results on building dialogue systems from large corpuses using neural architectures. I will highlight several challenges related to data acquisition, algorithmic development, performance evaluation, and user studies.
