The research continues...

Eve's role in Alexa Prize is over, but her journey continues. As part of our ongoing research, we are adapting Eve to learn human level conversation via self play. And you can help!

We're trying to build amazing socialbots. Think Siri, Alexa, Cortana, or Google Assistant - except that instead of simply giving factual responses to simple questions, we want to build AI technology that understands what you say, has feelings, and wants to have an open-ended, free-ranging conversation with you.

So where do I come in?

Our socialbot is called "Eve". In order to help Eve understand natural language, we need data to combine with our artificial intelligence algorithms. So we need really good examples of interesting, fun, and thoughtful conversation. We just want you to relax, be yourself, and talk - then win great prizes!

Did someone say prizes?

Yep! The idea is simple: the more you talk and the more interesting your conversations are, the more points you earn. The more points you earn, the higher your chances of winning are. We're giving away $5k in prizes:

After each competition round, all scores will be reset and the challenge will begin anew.

Raffle tickets for the Macbook Pro will be awarded based on points earned during each score period. The raffle ticket threshhold for the round ending on November 14, 2018 is 400,000 points (or about 12 chats).
