Talking to a novice learner!
Natural language processing is a hot field in the world of technology and artificial intelligence. Also, with increasing globalization and integration of cultures, demand for foreign language learning is on the rise. Most language learning programs have some form of built-in chat function, but they are either scripted or human-led. Our bot aims to address those weaknesses.
