Pass the Turing test, get your share of a $2.5 million prize. Fine print: your original socialbot, powered by Alexa, is actually what gets tested.
The Alexa Prize, announced last week, is a $2.5 million competition to advance conversational artificial intelligence.
Have you heard any of this from your device(s) of choice?
- “Hmm, I didn’t catch that”
- “Sorry, I’ll try harder”
- “Can you please repeat the question”
The people behind the Alexa Prize want to scrub these phrases from the memory banks forever.
