The Alexa Prize Socialbot Grand Challenge will be competed for the fifth time since launching in 2017. A multimillion-dollar university challenge to advance human-computer interaction, we will begin accepting applications on July 6, 2022. Competing teams will create socialbots that can converse coherently and engagingly for 20 minutes with humans on a range of current events and popular topics such as entertainment, sports, politics, technology, and fashion while earning a rating of 4 out of 5 stars.
Selected university teams will receive a $250,000 research grant, Alexa-enabled devices, free Amazon Web Services (AWS) to support their development efforts, and access to other tools, data, and Alexa team support.
Applications must be submitted by October 5,2022 and will be reviewed and evaluated based on: potential scientific contribution to the field, technical merit of the approach, novelty of the idea, and the team’s ability to execute against their plan.
