Project Description

I have a Foreign Service fellowship at the George Washington University to research and write about the international implications of artificial intelligence. Part of this research will look at applications for AI within the Department. As a demonstration of the technology, I'm looking for computer science student who can program an AI chatbot to talk about US foreign policy. This will be on a non-public system for internal Department demonstration purposes only.

I'm looking for a coder who knows AI systems and is willing to take a crack at developing a cool new tool. If you make this work, you could revolutionize diplomacy and you'll probably line yourself up for a fantastic AI gig after school. Think big!
