Abstract

The use of virtual assistants is common in the service processes of different universities around the world. Nowadays, several artificial intelligence tools such as natural language processors are offered for a more efficient development of this service. This article presents the implementation and usability evaluation of a chatbot based on the GPT-3.5-Turbo artificial intelligence language model for the attention of first semester students of Systems Engineering at the National University of Trujillo. The research design was pre-experimental and the chatbot usability questionnaire or CUQ was applied as a research instrument. The results obtained were that the chatbot presents an acceptable level of perceived usability and 93% of students agreed that the answers provided by the virtual assistant were useful. The conversational agent stood out in ease of use and navigation, and also exhibited problems in understanding the questions asked by the user and providing answers in a natural way.
