To be a part of the conversation, just say”Alexa let's chat” on any Alexa-enabled apparatus and begin your Alexa Prize journey. So far, customers have already logged thousands of hours of dialog with the eight different socialbots currently available.

Teams are thinking big about how to make strides in areas such as knowledge acquisition, natural language understanding and generation, context modeling, common sense reasoning, and planning.
A while back I wrote about the Alexa Prize, a university competition where engaging teams are creating socialbots focused on progressing personal computer to individual interaction. We are now in year two, currently heading into the last stretch for 2018 and I thought I would give everyone an update.

On July 2, the eight 2018 Alexa Prize teams, from universities across the globe, entered the semifinals period of the competition. In mid-August the two teams with the highest average customer evaluations will automatically progress to the finals round. Amazon will selects at least the group based on interestingness, coherence, their socialbot worth, rate, and scientific merit. Even though a mix of innovation, innovation, and creativity fuels groups, customer participation is crucial for them to achieve their goals. Your interactions and opinions will be crucial to helping teams continue to better their socialbots to the finals round.

Then you’ll be prompted to provide a evaluation and feedback. It is simple to try multiple socialbots just by stating”Alexa, allow 's chat” again.
