LIT: Literacy Innovative Technology. LIT will be a chatbot to help a user automate conversations with other people. LIT will be taught to be literate in words and their context rather than only recognise coded commands. LIT aims to emulate human basic critical thinking to be an effective chatbot. A key literacy skill LIT will have is to comprehend text from various angles and thus formulate thoughtful and insight responses, much like real human conversation. To achieve this, LIT will be imbued with basic critical thinking skills, which can be broken down into many simple tasks that are coordinated together.
