Tartan is a team out of Carnegie Mellon University and is comprised of PhD and master's students researching speech processing, natural language processing, and machine learning.
We are interested in exploring the capabilities of socialbots “in the wild”. This involves solving two problems: first, generating (domain relevant) content for the conversation and second, managing the spoken language conversation itself.
