New Paper at CMNA'23

My latest paper, titled “On The Role of Dialogue Models in the Age of Large Language Models”, will be presented at the upcoming 23rd Annual International Workshop on Computational Models of Natural Argument (CMNA'23).

The paper is joint work with Mark Snaith from RGU in which we consider the roles that dialogue models play in computational dialogue, how that role is changing with the advent of large-language models (LLMs) that are increasingly capable of dialogue, and argue that even with LLMs that are maximally capable of engaging in dialogue , there’ll still be a role for dialogue model research as in order to provide external bench-marks and regulatory guidance, for LLMs, just as they do for humans.
