Intelligent speakers are now paving the way in the AI scene. Alquist, a social chatbot designed by the Czech Technical University team of students under the leadership of Jan Šedivý from CIIRC CTU,  won 3rd place in summer 2020 and second place twice in a row in previous years in the Amazon Alexa Prize competition, while beating more than a hundred international academic teams. Jan will briefly review the competition and its primary motivations but his main focus will be on the Alquist team’s expertise, which embraces several disciplines, such as Conversational AI, Dialogue Management, Linguistics, Audio design, Creative writing, and many more. Šedivý will also explain the development of the dialogues for favourite conversational topics. Finally he will discuss the plans of how to turn Alquist into a product.

The discussion after the presentation will be chaired by Dr. Michael Londesborough.
