Building language systems
that work outside the lab
Research is at the heart of Eloquent Labs, and we use our research as the core technology in Eloquent's solutions. Our NLP research focuses on areas with natural applications to conversational AI. Research areas include state management for task-oriented dialog, novel neural models semantic similarity, new models and datasets for reading comprehension and more.
One of the keys to Eloquent's high-accuracy conversational AI is our human-in-the-loop
technology: "On The Job Learning," published by our CEO Keenon Werling at NIPS — a top conference
in machine learning.
On-the-Job Learning with Bayesian Decision Theory
Awarded a Spotlight Award in NIPS 2016
In addition, papers authored by Eloquent's founders have earned Outstanding Paper
awards at ACL, and one of the Best Paper awards at EMNLP. Eloquent's
team has authored dozens of peer-reviewed papers.
Eloquent's founding team reflects our commitment to research. Both Keenon and Gabor are graduates of Stanford's Natural Language Processing group.

even if asked syntactically differently.
Is it covered if someone gets their house burned down by somebody?
Detected previously asked: "Do our home insurance policies cover arson?"
Conversation State Management
Complex state awareness and sophisticated dialogue managment for
