Posted on: September 25th, 2018 by libby

Britbot was exhibited at the V&A Digital Design Weekend, 22nd-23rd September 2018.

Britbot is a net-based chatbot that speaks to you about 'Britishness' and gradually learns from what you say. Using machine learning and rule based techniques, Britbot was initially trained on the UK government's citizenship test and the corresponding textbook Life in the United Kingdom 2017. As it speaks to people it picks up new ideas about what it means to be British at this critical moment in history.

The V&A Digital Design Weekend 2018 is a weekend of free events exploring Artificial Intelligence, human-machine interaction and potential future worlds. Artists, designers, engineers and technologists take over the Museum with pop-up installations and performances.

The V&A is the world’s leading museum of art and design, housing a permanent collection of over 2.3 million objects that span over 5,000 years of human creativity.
