Students interested in joining the Open Virtual Asistant Lab are encouraged to take the CS 224V course (Conversational Virtual Assistants with Deep Learning) offered in the Fall quarter.

The course provides the background material necessary to conduct research in conversational agents as welll as an opportunity to conduct an independent research project, supervised by Prof. Monica Lam.

Successful demonstration of independent research capability in the Fall quarter can lead to a Research Assistantship in subsequent quarters.
