Arsovski, S., Wong, S. & Cheok, A. D. ORCID: 0000-0001-6316-2339 (2018). Open-domain neural conversational agents: The step towards artificial general intelligence. International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications, 9(6), pp. 403-408. doi: 10.14569/ijacsa.2018.090654


Development of conversational agents started half century ago and since then it has transformed into a technology that is accessible in various aspects in everyday life. This paper presents a survey current state-of-the-art in the open domain neural conversational agent research and future research directions towards Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) creation. In order to create a conversational agent which is able to pass the Turing Test, numerous research efforts are focused on open-domain dialogue system. This paper will present latest research in domain of Neural Network reasoning and logical association, sentiment analysis and real-time learning approaches applied to open domain neural conversational agents. As an effort to provide future research directions, current cuttingedge approaches applied to open domain neural conversational agents, current cutting-edge approaches in rationale generation and the state-of-the-art research directions in alternative training methods will be discussed in this paper.
