Overview

Commonsense-Dialogues Dataset

We present Commonsense-Dialogues, a crowdsourced dataset of ~11K dialogues grounded in social contexts involving utilization of commonsense. The social contexts used were sourced from the train split of the SocialIQA dataset, a multiple-choice question-answering based social commonsense reasoning benchmark.

For the collection of the Commonsense-Dialogues dataset, each Turker was presented a social context and asked to write a dialogue of 4-6 turns between two people based on the event(s) described in the context. The Turker was asked to alternate between the roles of an individual referenced in the context and a 3rd party friend. See the following dialogues as examples:

    "1": {  # dialogue_id
        "context": "Sydney met Carson's mother for the first time last week. He liked her.",   # multiple individuals in the context: Sydney and Carson
        "speaker": "Sydney",   # role 1 = Sydney, role 2 = a third-person friend of Sydney
        "turns": [
            "I met Carson's mother last week for the first time.",
            "How was she?",
            "She turned out to be really nice. I like her.",
            "That's good to hear.",
            "It is, especially since Carson and I are getting serious.",
            "Well, at least you'll like your in-law if you guys get married."
        ]
    }

    "2": {
        "context": "Kendall had a party at Jordan's house but was found out to not have asked and just broke in.",
        "speaker": "Kendall",
        "turns": [
            "Did you hear about my party this weekend at Jordan\u2019s house?",
            "I heard it was amazing, but that you broke in.",
            "That was a misunderstanding, I had permission to be there.",
            "Who gave you permission?",
            "I talked to Jordan about it months ago before he left town to go to school, but he forgot to tell his roommates about it.",
            "Ok cool, I hope everything gets resolved."
        ]
    }

The data can be found in the /data directory of this repo. train.json has ~9K dialogues, valid.json and test.json have ~1K dialogues each. Since all the contexts were sourced from the train split of SocialIQA, it is imperative to note that any form of multi-task training and evaluation with Commonsense-Dialogues and SocialIQA must be done with caution to ensure fair and accurate conclusions.

Some statistics about the data are provided below:

Stat Train Valid Test
# of dialogues 9058 1157 1158
average # of turns in a dialogue 5.72 5.72 5.71
average # of words in a turn 12.4 12.4 12.2
# of distinct SocialIQA contexts used 3672 483 473
average # of dialogues for a SocialIQA context 2.46 2.395 2.45

    thanks for your excellent work. May I ask, could you also share your filtering code, which is introduced in the section 3.1? or also sharing the filtered data from the existing dataset? Thanks a lot!
