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?
