Bootstrapping Chatbot Interfaces to Databases
In this paper, we present an automated technique for creating a chatbot interface to databases. To the best of our knowledge, our technique is the first one for bootstrapping chatbots for question answering on relational databases. Our method leverages the natural language classifiers present in industrial chatbot platforms for natural language to structure query translation. We use our framework to create usable chatbots starting from the databases in a short time. We instantiated several chatbots in different domains and demonstrate the usefulness of it.
