Some time back I wrote about that the Alexa Prize, a university competition where participating teams are producing socialbots focused on advancing computer to human interaction. We are currently in year two, currently heading into the final stretch for 2018 and that I thought I would give an update to everybody.
Then you’ll be prompted to supply feedback and a evaluation. It is simple to try multiple socialbots just by saying”Alexa, let's chat” again.
To be part of the dialog, just say”Alexa allow 's talk” on any Alexa-enabled apparatus and begin your own Alexa Prize journey. So far, customers have already logged thousands of hours of dialog with the eight socialbots currently available.
Teams are thinking big about how to make strides in areas including knowledge acquisition, natural language understanding and generation, context modeling, common sense reasoning, and dialog planning.
In mid-August the 2 teams with the highest average customer ratings will automatically advance to the finals round. Amazon will selects at least one other group according to their socialbot worth, coherence, interestingness, speed, and scientific merit. While a mix of innovation, passion, and creativity fuels teams, customer participation is crucial for them to reach their objectives. Your interactions and feedback will be crucial to assisting teams continue to improve their socialbots into the finals round.
