Application period for next Alexa Prize challenge opens
The Amazon Alexa Prize team encourages all interested teams to apply for the Grand Challenge 4 by 11:59 p.m. PST on October 6, 2020.
Winners from the third annual competition were Emory University's Emora, Stanford University's Chirpy Cardinal, and Czech Tech University's Alquist.
In the video below, you'll hear directly from the three winning teams of the Alexa Prize Socialbot Grand Challenge 3. Representatives from each touched on the challenges they set out to solve, the research that went into creating their socialbots, and the science behind their results.
The challenge, launched in 2016, is a competition for university students dedicated to advancing the field of conversational AI. Teams are challenged to design socialbots that Alexa customers can interact with via Alexa-enabled devices. Their ultimate goal is to meet the Grand Challenge: earn a composite score of 4.0 or higher (out of 5) from the judges, and have the judges find that at least two-thirds of their conversations with the socialbot in the final round of judging remain coherent and engaging for 20 minutes.
