I'm wondering if anyone knows about any projects that break down conversations for an AI. I'll explain what I mean - I've seen a lot of hardcoded responses, but nothing that allows an AI to break a piece of dialogue into components (say that the speaker sounds happy or is trying to be manipulative) and model a response based on this.
I envision a coding scheme for different core components of conversation. This would allow an AI to be more dynamic in its responses, and would be closer to actually being able to hold a conversation.
I'm not looking for AI generated text, at least not in the sense of some NN or the like being fed a diet of leterature and seeing what it spits out - there's nothing dynamic about that.
