摘   要:Conversational artificial intelligence (AI) has been widely applied to different products and services in the past few years. As a common engagement channel between customers and businesses, live chat can benefit substantially from conversational AI. Currently, businesses spend a tremendous amount of time and money to train and educate chat agents. The training and educating processes include providing agents with chat flows, FAQs, and answer templates to guide chat agents answering customer questions efficiently and properly. However, creating such training materials for chat agents is time-consuming. In addition, the materials need to be constantly updated as new services and products are deployed to customers. In this work, we study the problem of extracting common chat flow from online customer care chats to enhance question response generation, with the goal of using them to facilitate chat agent training.
