Regarding the RoboChat challenge,

You have 5 categories yet promise to only award ONE bot as winner of the $1500.00

What if one bot wins the Most Popular and Best Personality category and another is best at being teachable and knowledgeable,
how will a winner be decided?

Will there ultimately be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for contestants?

Will there be available for posting, chatlogs of the various contestants during the judging (showing judges questions and bots' responses) as well as the final transcripts?

Sorry for the questions but most of these are standard for contests of this type and in light of this I was merely seeking some clarification in this regard.

- Thank you -

Hi there,

Actually the winner would be the one who will be the best in all those categories.

Thanks,

Robo Chat Challenge Team

Thanks for posting an update.

Since it has been 57 days since your last post, a lot of people thought the contest was a hoax and rightfully so.

During things like this, people who are fans of chatbots and AI in general, like and need to be kept informed.

We'd love to be able to view chatbot logs showing conversation of the finalists if at all possible and how the
winning bot was selected.

Thanks again,

@Robo Chat Challenge

What did you do about the clearly hacked voting results ?

I agree Freddy and I also wonder how that was even allowed to happen. Could a person vote MORE THAN ONCE?? I never tried but just now thought of it.
Contact all your friends on facebook and have them all vote and tell their friends to vote...etc., etc.

I certainly hope the "Judges" DO NOT use any of the voting results in the formulation of their final selection(s).

Why would such a contest even offer a "Voting" section if it didn't matter anyway?!

There are still a lot of unanswered questions in this whole affair! Obviously not much experience in organizing or running a contest, IMHO. I've been around chatbots since Eliza appeared in BASIC for homebuilt computers and have never seen the likes of this!!

@Freddy and Art

At this point, we are fighting out with time and some other issues simultaneously, and it is not possible to share the transcripts immediately but we are looking into this matter very keenly. But above all, we would like to pay a vote of thanks to all the chat bots that participated and make the competition interesting to some extent.

The Robo Chat Challenge results have nothing to do with the Audience Poll, it was just general a general poll and if people abused it, it was their fault and falsified manipulation and we have ignored the Poll results.

One point, we didn't mention above was that we were more focused on chatbots[dot]org forum, as there is much more fan following than here on this thread, and we also didn't get the desired response. Please don't take this in a negative manner, it was our intuition and we just wanted to share the clear picture.

All the best to the members and think tank of this forum, keep up the good work!

Regards,
Robo Chat Challenge Team

I am glad the poll was ignored at least.  I'm not so sure if you have fans over on chatbots.org yet though - you have a lot of explaining to do over there !

Here's a link for those interested in clearing up some of the muddy waters, yes I know most of us here already read that thread, but hey ho :

http://www.chatbots.org/ai_zone/viewthread/1069/P105/

I linked to the stage where we were trying to establish if transcripts will be published and also why some of the bots did not appear to have been visited by any judges.

Haris, you have tried hard, I assume this is your first attempt at this kind of thing ?

I understand that you would want to focus your public offerings to one place, no problem :)

I see the audience poll is back up on the site and it still includes the bots that didn't make it through, shouldn't they be removed from the poll?

What is the point of people voting for a bot to win the contest when the bot is not even in the contest?

I wouldn't go too much by that poll. One bot has 1002 votes in poll 1 but only 4 in poll 2.

I see, you mean the bot that has 1002 votes to win but is no longer in the contest.

Yeah, good point.
