© 2015 IEEE. We propose a method for constructing dialogue success classifiers that are capable of making accurate predictions in domains unseen during training. Pooling and adaptation are also investigated for constructing multi-domain models when data is available in the new domain. This is achieved by reformulating the features input to the recurrent neural network models introduced in [1]. Importantly, on our task of main interest, this enables policy training in a new domain without the dialogue success classifier (which forms the reinforcement learning reward function) ever having seen data from that domain before. This occurs whilst incurring only a small reduction in performance relative to developing and using an in-domain dialogue success classifier. Finally, given the motivation with these dialogue success classifiers is to enable policy training with real users, we demonstrate that these initial policy training results obtained with a simulated user carry over to learning from paid human users.
