CLIVE - An Artificially Intelligent Chat Robot for Conversational Language Practice
This paper presents an artificially intelligent chat robot called CLIVE. The aim of CLIVE is to provide to a useful and engaging method for people learning a foreign language, to practice their conversational skills. Unlike other systems that focus on providing a limited or structured tutoring experience for language learning, CLIVE has the ability of holding open, natural human-like conversations with people on a wide range of topics. This provides users with a life-like experience that is a more natural way of learning a new language. Experiments were conducted between CLIVE and real human users and an analysis of the conversations shows that CLIVE performs with accuracy and is an accepted method of language practice amongst users.
