CMU Magnus

The vision of CMU Magnus is to build a social bot that can engage users in conversations apart from answering factual queries or performing everyday tasks. In order to facilitate high quality interaction with users, the conversation with the agent should evolve by leveraging mechanisms that establish coherence with user feedback and reactions. In order to engage users in a coherent manner, it would be useful if the agent plans the conversation ahead in time. This team, consisting of PhD and Masters students from Carnegie Mellon University, brings together experience in chatbot interaction strategies, question answering, neural modeling and machine learning.
