We are more connected than ever, yet we are becoming ever more lonely. This modern plague of hidden emotional pain can be alleviated and cured with a heart to heart conversation, between a human and a computer.
What it does
An open domain, unscripted purely generative dialog system. It talks about anything in a free form, natural conversation.
How I built it
Kami is trained and runs in the cloud and is conversing with the user through Alexa.
Challenges I ran into
The full list? How about 70 years of failed attempts to pass the Turing test?!
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Making an AI laugh and cry
What I learned
A language model may have more parameters than stars in the milky way galaxy, but is not as smart as a rat.
What's next for Kami
Beg the Alexa team to make Alexa Conversations full duplex?
