Application: Data-driven taxonomy for annotation resolution (Patent ID: US20230410123A1)

The patent filed by LivePerson Inc. describes an intent confusion evaluation engine that assesses conversation data between customers and agents to determine levels of confusion among different intents identified in the messages exchanged. The engine generates a graphical representation illustrating the various intents and their confusion levels, updating dynamically in real-time as annotations are modified. The method involves applying a machine-learning model to ongoing conversation data, generating annotations and metrics, and dynamically creating a graphical representation based on these metrics as conversations progress.

The system and computer-readable storage medium described in the patent store executable instructions that, when executed, perform operations such as receiving conversation data, applying a machine-learning model to generate annotations, and dynamically creating a graphical representation illustrating confusion levels among intents. The system allows for interactions with the graphical representation to modify annotations, re-evaluate conversation data, and update the graphical representation in real-time. The method also includes merging classifications, using confidence scores to assess message associations, and training the machine-learning model with sample conversation data and annotations. Overall, the patent outlines a comprehensive system for evaluating intent confusion in conversations between customers and agents, providing real-time insights into the effectiveness of communication.
