The Alexa Prize Socialbot

Mar 24, 2018



Alquist is one of the three chatbots which were selected as the Alexa Prize finalist. Its task is to maintain a coherent and engaging conversation with a user about popular topics (movies, sports, news, music, etc.), and it uses a combination of generative and retrieval approaches to balance the advantages of both of the methods. It has been developed for more than a year by a group of 5 students. We will describe the Alquist architecture with all the NLP techniques we used as well as all the obstacles we encountered during the Alexa Prize competition.
