an open-domain conversational agent
We are MIPT DREAM team which was selected by Amazon for AlexaPrize Socialbot Grand Challenge 3!!
Alexa Prize Socialbot
Grand Challenge 3
is challenge to advance human-computer interaction. Teams will create socialbots that can converse coherently and engagingly with humans on a range of current events and popular topics such as entertainment, sports, politics, technology, and fashion.
Opportunity for DREAM team
The Alexa Prize is a great opportunity to develop a socialbot that can be a good companion for Alexa users, a virtual character able to provide entertainment with useful and funny facts, as well as, engage its partner into a deeper discussion on topics of interest in a natural way. Our socialbot will fill the gap between production-ready agents and state-of-the-art NLP research.

DREAM Team
We are the team from the Neural Networks and Deep Learning Lab at Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. The main research area of our lab is NLP with a focus on Conversational Intelligence and Dialog Agents. We develop a conversational artificial intelligence framework DeepPavlov that contains all the components required for building chatbots.
