What is Alquist?
Alquist is the name of the conversational AI developed by a bunch of students from the Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic. This year, we compete for the second time in the finals of the Amazon’s Alexa Prize. Our task is to develop an AI able to hold fluent conversations with humans on any popular topic, such as movies, sports, or news. The name of our socialbot refers to the theatre play R.U.R. by Karel Čapek, in which the word robot was used for the first time.

How can you use it?
You can use Alquist in a movie too. Alquist is a part of the experimental movie 'The Story of Alquist'. It is the first movie where you can talk with an AI narrator. Ask any questions to reveal the mystery and conclude the story!
