What is Amazon Alexa Prize?
Alexa, Let's Chat.... The Amazon Alexa Prize is an international competition that grants university students the opportunity to improve conversational artificial intelligence. We are trying to create a socialbot that can carry a lasting conversation for about 20 minutes. As the competition progresses, Alexa customers will then get the chance speak with each socialbot to test the effectiveness and success of each system.
