What’s Up Bot

Our international team of 6 PhD students and faculty advisors has a wide range of experience from both academic and industrial research, and is based in the Interaction Lab at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, which has a long history of building data-driven dialogue systems using machine learning methods. Our vision is to create a humorous and engaging socialbot that keeps users engaged and enjoying conversation on topics of their choice. Our inspiration is the kind of conversation that two new acquaintances might have in a pub -- a mixture of topic-related chat, finding out about each other, and sharing stories.
