The chatbot development competition is comprised of Monmouth University Business and Computer Science students competing to develop software that delivers automated customer service support through messaging platforms. Teams have been working on their projects since mid-January.
At the Presentation and Awards Reception, the three finalist teams will present chatbots that:
• Help consumers find recipes based on specific nutritional and health needs
• Help students and parents with university admissions questions
• Provide outdoorsmen with guidance on camping questions and safety measures
A key part of the competition has been mentoring of the students by individuals on the RightAnswers management team on their business analysis, technical implementation and presentation skills. “We are impressed with the ideas and energy the students are bringing to this competition. It is also rewarding coaching and giving students insight into real-world strategies when developing business software solutions. Moreover, we want to develop the future entrepreneurs of tomorrow, and we think competitions like this are a good step in that direction,” said Jeff Weinstein, President and CEO, RightAnswers.
RightAnswers’ executive management team will select the winning chatbot, judged according to:
• Usefulness of the chatbot in handling a real-world customer support problem
• Quality of business analysis and research for the size of the problem
