CHECK: CHatbots in Education and Culture for Knowledge acquisition

The CHECK project applies AI and cognitive technologies for creating a novel approach to development of smart chatbots.
Assuming that a large body of content exists, the iCHAT technology develops, in a sustainable manner, chatbots helping the user to efficiently use that body of content.
Two real-life applications are envisioned:
a) An Education-Bot assisting pupils working on improving their understanding of Mathematics
b) A Cultural-Bot, capable of engaging the user in a meaningful conversation about “Sala delle Asse”, a room of the Sforza Castle in Milan decorated by Leonardo da Vinci and his workshop
Teachers, experts in cultural heritage and real-life users are involved in the project.

iCHAT develops a novel methodology for designing data-driven conversations, and an innovative technology based upon the features of WATSON, the AI environment by IBM.
