Get to know Xavier!
The New Media Institute (NMI) fosters 542 students and between those 542 students there are about 400-500 emails that get received during a semester regarding New Media classes, advising, POD, etc. Through reserach, the Artificial Intelligence team realized as the number of New Media students go up, the number of questions asked is constantly increasing, but the types of questions being asked does not really change. This can be overwhelming at times for the small New Media staff. For this reason the New Media Capstone Artificial Intelligence team has created Xavier.
Xavier is an Ai based Teaching Assistant designed to assist prospective student looking to join the NMI, and current students who need additional information. Xavier is a chatbot designed to answer all you're new media questions, eliminate repetitive emails, and be a reliable source of information for current, and prospective students. Xavier is created with recast. ai and the code used to create Xavier allows the AI to keep learning and growing as more questions get asked. We hope Xavier has a 100% response accuracy rate within a year!
