Masheli: A Choctaw-English Bilingual Chatbot (bibtex)
by Brixey, Jacqueline and Traum, David
Abstract:
We present the implementation of an autonomous Choctaw-English bilingual chatbot. Choctaw is an American indigenous language. The intended use of the chatbot is for Choctaw language learners to practice. The system’s backend is NPCEditor, a response selection program that is trained on linked questions and answers. The chatbot’s answers are stories and conversational utterances in both languages. We experiment with the ability of NPCEditor to appropriately respond to language mixed utterances, and describe a pilot study with Choctaw-English speakers.
