Class plan.png What are we going to learn today?[edit]


Please build a chatbot for our class.

You will need to think about and design intent.

  1. What problem are you trying to solve?
  2. What are your goals?
  3. Where are you located?
  4. What department are you in?
  5. What industry are you in?
  6. Would you like personal support?

You will need to think about and design how to manage context. Please DO NOT BUILD a stateless chatbot!

If the bot doesn’t use context then it is stateless. It will only respond to the latest user message, disregarding all the history of the conversation.

I will assess you formatively today, and make a professional judgement to what extent you understand our learning material. I will use observation, your written work, answers to questions, and contribution to class discussions as data to make my decisions.

I will also ask you to complete a self-assessment which I will use to help me guage how well you think you understand our material in class.
