Chatbot Challenge Winners Selected Saturday, February 4

Monmouth University and RightAnswers will hold a demonstration and awards ceremony for its customer service chatbot challenge on Saturday, Feb. 4, 2017 from 9:30 a.m. until noon in Pozycki Hall.

The chatbot development competition is comprised of Monmouth University business and computer science students. Their task has been to develop software that delivers automated customer service support through messaging platforms.

At the presentation and awards reception, the three finalist teams will present chatbots that: help consumers find recipes based on specific nutritional and health needs; help students and parents with university admissions questions; or provide outdoorsmen with guidance on camping questions and safety measures.

A key component of the competition has been mentoring of the students by the RightAnswers management team on business analysis, technical implementation and presentation skills.

Register for the free event, which will include breakfast, team presentations and demos of the chatbots, and announcement of the winners.
