Pythia: Research project for the development of chatbots technology



The Pythia project aims at the development and implementation of a new model for providing services, based on the chatbot technology. Through the implementation of the Bots-as-a-Service model, the actors involved in the project, aim at the creation of new personalized services for the users through natural language and the performance of automated transactions through the dialogic interactions with the bots. The deployment of the services of the Bots-as-a-Service model will be supported by infrastructures that will emerge from targeted research, and will provide reliable results regarding the understanding of the hellenic language and the structuring of a set of logical rules and arguments for the upgrading of the interaction level with the least possible human intervention.
