Consultants' Network - Leveraging Machine Learning with Bots

on June 12, 2017 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM

Speaker Kyle Polich
Topic Info

The dream of intelligent computer agents predates the personal computer. As Alan Turing predicted, language understanding and generation seems to be in the class of truly difficult problems. Yet, recent advances in deep learning and a suite of software solutions for deploying chat bots has started to make basic chat interfaces a useful reality. In this talk, I'll cover both theoretical concepts for chat bot construction and review available solutions on the market. I'll share my experience working with these tools and comment on what I consider low hanging fruit. Lastly, I'll share some speculation about the future of chat bot interfaces.
