ParlAI is a unified platform by Facebook AI Research that allows developers to share, train and test their chatbots. ParlAI (pronounced “parlay”), an open-source software platform for dialog research implemented in Python. It is where researchers can submit new tasks and training algorithms to a single and shared library. It is a community-based platform.
ParlAI complements existing FAIR text research efforts like FastText, our quick and efficient text classification tool, and CommAI, a framework for developing artificial general intelligence through increasingly complex tasks. It is integrated with Amazon Mechanical Turk for collection of data, training and evaluation of dialog models and tasks.
Launched in May 15, 2017 ParlAI targets to make chatbots talk like real humans and to unify different dialog datasets input into a standardized framework of dialog models.
