A particular focus will be on the chatbot's adaptability and learning capabilities to evolve with the changing needs and queries of the student body. The session will also provide a comprehensive review of the preliminary data collected during the pilot phase, demonstrating efficacy, student engagement, and areas for further development.

Attendees will gain valuable insights into the practical challenges and ethical considerations associated with implementing AI in an academic environment. The seminar is designed for educators, technologists, university administrators, and anyone interested in the application of AI for educational enhancement. Join us to explore how this innovative tool can redefine student support mechanisms and contribute to a more efficient, streamlined university experience.
