When a new future-proof technology appears, its rate of development hinges on the number of valuable use cases it produces. And if it benefits business and society, it ingrates in our everyday lives fleetingly. Voice interface is natural for humans, without a doubt, it would become ubiquitous wherever convenient.

Voice assistants, smart devices, smart screens, and messaging apps already create new channels of communication and interactions, they improve business performance and the standards of living.

Help us to do even more. Think of any case where a bot or an assistant could bring tangible benefits – how it could help, comfort, engage, organize, navigate, entertain, save time or money, etc. And create a unique and handy solution.

Make Conversational AI Work
Create a conversational AI solution using open-source Kotlin-based JAICF
(Just AI Conversational Framework)
A challenge by Just AI
The Challenge
We are looking for some new and fancy ways to use conversational AI
You can choose any case, there are no restrictions. For instance, JAICF was previously used to build in a voice assistant into a habit tracking app, to create a bot for a scooter rental app as an incoming call treatment, and even to make an interactive voice game Lovecraft World for smart displays.
Use our open-source Kotlin-based JAICF framework to build up conversational UX. You may want to add voice navigation to an Android app, create a smart bot for a website, or build a useful skill for Alexa or Google Assistant. The only limit here is your imagination!
The Tech
During the event, participants will be creating AI-powered solutions using open-source Kotlin-based JAICF. It's a framework for a transparent dialogue state management that collects multiple platform libraries, NLU engines, persistence layers, and servers.
How to Get started
In case some extended functionality is needed, hackers may also use Aimybox SDK to embed a freshly built voice assistant into an app or a device; and JAICP conversational platform as cloud deployment and debug environment.

Aimybox SDK
JAICP
We recommend that you use JAICP so as to save your time on NLU implementation and other integrations. This platform offers benefits of seamless access to NLU service, multi-channel integration, deployment and debugging tools for your JAICF project. Doing so, you can start with your project implementation right away.

The Challenge Prize
Hackers who build the most helpful and efficient solution get the challenge prize from Just AI:
Hackers who perform best among all Junction participants, who promote innovation and out-of-the-box thinking will take home the main prize of
Winner – €1,500
€10,000 from Junction
1st runner up – IntelliJ IDEA subscriptions and Cyberpunk 2077 for each team member
2nd runner up – Cyberpunk 2077 for each team member
What's more, all winners receive annual JAICP subscriptions
The Judgement
The dialog itself may be quite simple, but it has to be obvious that in a given setting the voice, compared to traditional interfaces, really makes oneself useful or adds value fundamentally.
The project's practical value, quality of implementation, as well as good conversational design are the main performance indicators for our team.

JAICF use is a must, but if you apply any other Just AI techs like Aimybox or JAICP – it will earn you many brownie points.

In other words, it has to be a cool meaningful use case that proves its wide applicability. Something, that affects users' lives positively. And the more users – the better!
