The Better Placed partnership of Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark are looking for a
supplier to support the development of a Skillbot pilot.
Skillbot is a partnership project between Better Placed and London South Bank University
(LSBU). It is a ‘proof of concept’ pilot project that utilises Artificial Intelligence to help residents navigate
the employment, skills and careers advice landscape. It will work as a chatbot that residents can interact with when
seeking information and navigation to different sources of support. We are seeking external support to develop the
knowledge base that will sit within Skillbot.
In order for Skillbot to be effective, it requires a knowledge database that is
sufficient enough to provide relevant advice to residents. The output from this specification will be a series of
questions residents could ask regarding their education,
employment or skills and appropriate responses the chatbot should provide. It will also provide the different ways
in which a question could be asked leading to the same result.
