ScriptWriter: Narrative-Guided Script Generation

Proceedings of the 58th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics

It is appealing to have a system that generates a story or scripts automatically from a storyline, even though this is still out of our reach. In dialogue systems, it would also be useful to drive dialogues by a dialogue plan. In this paper, we address a key problem involved in these applications - guiding a dialogue by a narrative. The proposed model ScriptWriter selects the best response among the candidates that fit the context as well as the given narrative. It keeps track of what in the narrative has been said and what is to be said. A narrative plays a different role than the context (i.e., previous utterances), which is generally used in current dialogue systems. Due to the unavailability of data for this new application, we construct a new large-scale data collection GraphMovie from a movie website where end- users can upload their narratives freely when watching a movie. Experimental results on the dataset show that our proposed approach based on narratives significantly outperforms the baselines that simply use the narrative as a kind of context.

Mutux at SemEval-2018 Task 1: Exploring Impacts of Context Information On Emotion Detection
Pan Du | Jian-Yun Nie
Proceedings of The 12th International Workshop on Semantic Evaluation

This paper describes MuTuX, our system that is designed for task 1-5a, emotion classification analysis of tweets on SemEval2018. The system aims at exploring the potential of context information of terms for emotion analysis. A Recurrent Neural Network is adopted to capture the context information of terms in tweets. Only term features and the sequential relations are used in our system. The results submitted ranks 16th out of 35 systems on the task of emotion detection in English-language tweets.
