Defining Slots in Dialog Engine


A slot is an entity that identifies discrete pieces of information in an utterance. Using a Dialog Engine, you can map different types of slots to utterances. You can map different kinds of slots to the same object or to different parts of the utterance. Here’s an overview of the various types of slots. To learn more, read this article. You can also use the Slot API to create your own custom slots.

Identifies discrete pieces of information in an utterance

The Dialog Engine is a system for automatically identifying discrete pieces of information in an utteration. The utterance is broken into pieces of information by a user. The user is prompted to provide a new prototype keyword candidate, and the system calculates distances between each input and the prompted utterance. This algorithm is able to identify the pieces of information that are not present in both inputs.

Identifying a slot type

Identifying a slot type is a useful pattern learning technique. A slot is a segment of speech that represents a particular feature of the speaker. To identify a slot, you must know its type and the pattern that it follows. There are two kinds of slots, and this article will discuss both of them. First, let’s define the meaning of a slot. This is a placeholder element that a script can insert before the content is rendered.

Defining a slot type

A slot type is a localized subset of frame objects. A slot type must have an enumeration_value property with a string value of less than 140 characters. The value of a slot may be an array, list, or numeric value. It is important to document the attributes of a slot type in the defining object. The name of a slot type must not be case sensitive and should not be longer than 100 characters.

Defining a slot type in Dialog Engine

The first step in defining a slot type in Dialog Engine is to add a name attribute. The name attribute allows you to define fallback content that will be displayed if the slot is empty. In this example, we will define a slot named “New York” and add a name attribute for its synonyms. Then, click on the Allow Synonyms checkbox to allow the engine to add these synonyms to the conversation.

Payback percentage of a slot machine

A high payback percentage indicates that a slot machine is likely to pay out more in winnings than in losses. While the payback percentage of a slot machine may vary in different locales, they are usually well above that. Payback percentages on slots can range anywhere from 85% to 98%. Payback percentages for progressive slot machines are also not excluded from this calculation. Payback percentages make sense in the context of thousands of spins.
