The objective of the proposed students advising chatbot is to eliminate the need of student advisor involvement as much as possible. It is a hybrid chatbot, which consists of both retrieval-based and generative models. In a situation where the retrieval-based model is applied, the proposed chatbot can answer questions automatically with trained answers and/or predefined answers stored in the repository. In another situation where the generative model is applied, the chatbot is capable of answering questions beyond the set of expected questions, or questions that demand for further student advising by student advisors.
