Abstract

Ambiguous or open-ended requests to a dialoguesystem result in more complex dialogues.We present a semantic-specificity metricto gauge this complexity for dialogue systemsthat access a relational database. An experimentwhere a simulated user makes requeststo a dialogue system shows that semanticspecificity correlates with dialogue length.
