Brno Ph.D. Talent

Alexander Polok

Holistic Dialogue Modeling

Lector: prof. Dr. Ing. Jan Černocký

Institution: Brno University of Technology, Faculty of Information Technology

Field: Information Technology


About the project

The project is motivated by the inherent limitations of conversational AI systems, specifically their component-based architectures. While these systems perform well in task-oriented interactions, they face challenges in providing genuinely natural and context-aware dialogue experiences. The project aims to transition towards jointly trained, integrated architectures based on neural embeddings with interconnections.


Why science?

I'm driven by curiosity, and doing science enables me to explore new ideas and perspectives on a daily basis. Moreover, my competitive nature finds fulfilment in making progress that positively impacts others, bringing me great joy.


What do I like most about Brno

What I enjoy most about Brno is its people. I love the cosy coffee and restaurant spots around the city, Lužánky, Špilas, and especially the countless opportunities for self-realization that the city provides.
