University of Northampton students prototype new AI chatbot.

Date 11 June 2024

In this short film, Dr Mu Mu, Programme Leader for the AI and Data Science course, and students discuss a new project that aims to improve student access to information through the development of a new AI chatbot. 

Richard Byles, Learning Technologist.

Dr Mu Mu explains that students often have common questions about their schedules, deadlines, and accommodation. To address these needs, second-year students are tasked with creating an AI chatbot. Three BSc Artificial Intelligence & Data Science students share insights into the development process.

Emphasising the broader learning outcomes Dr Mu said, “It’s not only about the technical challenges, but also thinking about ethics, legal issues, and how to make the chatbot more personalised.”

The practical experience gained from this project has led the students gaining successful placements and internships in prestigious UK organisations. This project exemplifies how our programme not only equips students with technical expertise but also prepares them to navigate and address real-world challenges.
