What is Alquist?
Alquist is the name of the social bot developed by a team of students from the Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic. Alquist is an advanced Conversational AI bot carrying an entertaining and engaging conversation with humans on popular topics, such as movies, sports, news, etc. The name of our socialbot refers to the theatre play R.U.R. by Karel Čapek, in which the word robot was used for the first time.

We will help you with your projects!
Alquist is an established set of NLP algorithms conducting thousands of dialogs a day. We are day by day accumulating how humans communicate, what are their preferences, what they like. We have mastered many of the intricate details of conducting smooth, engaging and entertaining dialogs. We have developed different ways how to include the latest interesting or fun facts surfacing on the Internet to dialogs. If you need help with your product let us know. Read more here
Try it now
You can try Alquist by saying “Alexa, let’s chat.” to your Echo device. You will be connected to one of the three competing chatbots. Alquist is one of them but it needs to stay anonymous.
How does it work?
Alquist supported movie
We have also used the Alquist technology to develop a sample of an interactive movie 'The Story of Alquist'. It is the first movie where you can experience the multimodal interaction. Talk with an AI narrator. Ask any questions to reveal the mystery and conclude the story! It runs in Chrome, it also runs on Android.
