Title: Sentence Compression for Conversational Search
In this talk, I will discuss some of the challenges that conversational search faces in providing information to users. Some of them stem from the fact that many questions are answered with snippets from the web, which may not be the most appropriate to be inserted inside conversations. Secondly, I will describe in more detail the sentence compression and summarization approaches that are running in production in Google Home for improving the user experience around question answering.
