This fall, Humboldt State University introduced artificial intelligence chatbot HumBot to provide basic information for new students and transfers. Director of Communications and Marketing for Enrollment Management Josh Smith led the project over the last two months until its release.

Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs Alexander Enyedi initially pushed for the development of a chatbot two years ago after hearing about a chatbot at Georgia State University. HumBot is one chatbot among seven within California State Universities. AdmitHub, an AI chatbot service deed for students, developed all seven chatbots.

AdmitHub handed over HumBot pre-seeded with answers to the most common questions asked by first-year students. HSU then needed multiple departments to analyze the answers. HSU staff and summer students then seeded HumBot with an additional questions before it was released this fall. HumBot will continue to learn as students interact with it.

Smith noted that questions sent to HumBot can be viewed by the project staff.
