Dataset Description

Dataset Summary

This is the repo for the paper "Grounding Conversations with Improvised Dialogues" (ACL2020). The Selected Pairs of Learnable ImprovisatioN (SPOLIN) corpus is a collection of more than 68,000 "Yes, and" type dialogue pairs extracted from the Spontaneanation podcast by Paul F. Tompkins, the Cornell Movie-Dialogs Corpus, and the SubTle corpus. For more information, refer to our paper or our project page.

Available SPOLIN Versions:

The core dataset that was used for the experiments in the paper only includes yes-ands and non-yes-ands from Spontaneanation and most of what is provided in those extracted from the Cornell Movie-Dialogs Corpus. After the submitting the paper, we continued our iterative data augmentation process, repeating another iteration with the Cornell Movie-Dialogs Corpus and extracting from the SubTle corpus. This expanded version is also included in this repository here. This latest version of SPOLIN was used to train the model used in our demo.

In the data folder, we provide two versions of the SPOLIN training set:

  1. Version used for experiments in the ACL paper: data/spolin-train-acl.csv
  2. Expanded version: data/spolin-train.csv
