Students on the team:
Lehigh students have lots of questions. Most of them, of course, require a faculty or staff member to answer them. But many don’t! We envision a campus where Amazon’s Alexa system can be utilized to answer some of the most frequently asked and easy-to-answer questions, especially for students new to our university and trying to get oriented. This is a brand-new project and the student team will engage with Lehigh students and relevant offices to identify the best questions that Alexa can answer with a “human in the loop,” conducting focus groups, interviews, surveys etc. to determine the best way to implement such a system at Lehigh, making information-finding more efficient, effective, and ultimately, creating a more sustainable campus economy.
