The goal of this course is to introduce students to current methods and recent advances in conversational artificial intelligence (AI) and provide hands-on experience building a conversational AI system. The course will introduce students to basic components of a dialogue system, with an emphasis on conversational (vs. task-oriented) systems. Students will work in teams on labs and a final project. Amazon Alexa will be used as the primary development platform.
