Welcome to Robo Chat Challenge 2014!
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has played a pivotal role in the growing impact of chat-bots in popular culture, and is the reason behind the existence of chat bots today.
The diversity of chatbots and their rapidly evolving set of capabilities make this an exciting and challenging time to hold a chatbot contest.
A new market has evolved catering to this specialized area of chatbots, and has come forth from the world of academia and special interest groups into the public domain.
'Robo Chat Challenge' was first held in 2012, and now 'Robo Chat Challenge 2014' is about to take place, where chatbots can participate from all over the world.
Due to the minimal restrictions including the type of technology used in designing and creating chatbots, this is a unique and one-of-a-kind type of tournament.
The competition will begin in the month of May, and 'botmasters' from all across the globe can submit their chatbots to be evaluated for competency.
Each chatbot entered will be required to answer a series of diverse questions, and will be scored on its responses by a panel of independent judges according to pre-set criteria.
The top ten bots will move to a Final Round, in which an additional series of questions will be posed to these finalists. The winner of the competition will be the chatbot that has scored highest among the finalists.
Please note, all judges decisions are indisputable and final.
