On June 5th we announced the teams selected to compete for the Alexa Prize Socialbot Grand Challenge 3, a university competition to advance the state of the art of conversational AI. Competing teams will work to build on the progress made in previous years to engage and delight users on a range of popular topics from news and current events to sports and entertainment.
Today we’ve published detailed profiles shared by the teams and their members. To learn more about them, head to AlexaPrize.com to meet the individuals who are helping us have fun and make history with the next generation of AI capabilities.
This group of socialbots won’t be available until later this year, but you can stay up to date on all things Alexa Prize by following the #AlexaPrize hashtag. In the meantime, you can continue chatting with the winning socialbots from last year’s challenge by simply saying, “Alexa, let’s chat.”
Today I am happy to announce our intention to make available the Topical Chat dataset, a corpus of human-human social conversations collected from crowd workers that will be released publicly on September 17, 2019.[Read More]
