Creating the Cambridge Corpus Chatbot

Cambridge University Press have a wealth of data and information stored in their general and learner corpora. This talk looks at how the unique value of this data is being unlocked for teachers through the creation of a chatbot. The talk will look at the hackathon process that ELTjam and Cambridge have engaged in to build the early versions of the bot, and how the product can act as a fun and effective way of finding information to help with lesson planning.

What will you get out of this session? A better understanding of how Cambridge corpora can aid lesson planning. An understanding of bot technology and agile approaches to early stage product development.
