Description

By the end of the Build Project, you'll prepare two Chatbots in the form of working code on GitHub repository / PRD - A very simple rule based Chatbot and a Predictive Chatbot using ML. You will also learn about how to use large language models to build an advanced Chatbot that builds upon the previous two. Your solution should have working code, emulate a real-life chatbot that can answer questions, and have a PRD that meets industry standards). In the final project session, you'll present your results to the Build Fellow in a format that mimics a job interview (so you’re ready to discuss your work in real-life interviews).

Prerequisites

  • Basic knowledge of NLP: you should be able to do basic text preprocessing (tokenization, stemming, etc.) and should have basic understanding of text models and machine learning concepts like supervised learning, model evaluation, and training data preparation.  
  • Basic knowledge of Python: you should understand basic Python syntax, data structures (lists, dictionaries, etc.), functions, and control flow. You should be also familiar with fundamental Python libraries (NumPy, Pandas) and their usage for data manipulation.  
  • Other prerequisites: before the project starts, you'll need to have Python 3.5/3.6 installed on your computer, as well as VS Code (or another code editor of your choice).  
  • Interest in AI and Large Language Models
