Language training with conversational AI
The Malmö-based company NordAxon is developing a system for conversational AI (or a ‘chatbot’) to support language training. Using state-of-the-art language technology, it is possible to construct a system that allows users to interact and talk with different artificial interlocutors, such as a job interviewer or a 'fikakompis'. This gives users an opportunity to practice language skills by themselves. Lab members participate in a reference group for this project, reviewing the systems, and providing advice on language resources and dialogue management.
