Tohoku University: Tohoku University Chatbot Mascot Design Contest

Tohoku University’s official websites are trying out a new AI-driven chatbot to help users navigate and find the information they are looking for. To make the experience more engaging for users, the university is holding a mascot design and nickname contest for the chatbot.

The mascot is artificial intelligence with a friendly human touch, and will appear on the screen to respond to users who type in a question. Since it is young and still gathering data, it should come across likeable and relatable, even if it is sometimes unable to answer questions in a satisfactory way.

This contest is open to all Tohoku University students, faculty and staff.
