Masterclass #datingchatbot by Meetic

On January 18th, the Hubert Curien Research Laboratory (*) and Meetic Group (**) are hosting a masterclass to show you how Research and Enterprise have collaborated around a thesis **CIFRE to allow LARA to become the 1st conversational intelligence in dating chatbot with more than 400 000 active users per month in Europe.


A unique feedback to understand the different stages of development of a chatbot.

The “Lara” chatbot accompanies Meetic users throughout their journey, from creating their account to recommending profiles to advising meeting places.

Part of the development work consists of detecting user intentions and generating contextual responses, particularly through continuous automatic learning.

In the form of a round table, researchers and entrepreneurs will reveal you:

– methods and technologies to design and develop conversational intelligence

– the benefits of collaboration with research

– the key stages and development dynamics of such a project

Will be present to participate in this event:

Xavier de Baillenx, Innovation Lead at Meetic Group,
Christophe Gravier, HDR Senior Lecturer at the Jean Monnet University and Director of Development and Innovation at Télécom Saint-Etienne,
Thomas Dopierre, Data Scientist at Meetic and PhD at Hubert Curien Laboratory,
