Intent detection models are used frequently to build chatbots, text analysis solutions, and knowledge mining solutions. There are great tools available to build a dataset for an intent detection model. However, these models don’t offer good tools to perform a what-if analysis on your intent detection dataset.

Users are often resorting to trial and error to improve the dataset for their intent detection. We want to research better methods of determining what data could have a positive effect on the performance of the intent detection model.

Ideally, we want to provide the user with an impact score for samples to let them understand the effect of adding a specific sample to the training dataset of the intent detection model.

Another interesting method of performing what-if analysis could be the application of model explainers so the user gets a clear understanding of what exactly is picked up from a sample that is added to the training dataset.
