Democratising Conversational AI

Personal assistants such as Alexa and Siri are everywhere, but have trouble handling any tasks more complex than setting alarms or playing songs on Spotify. PolyAI is a new London-based startup with a next generation platform for building voice-based agents. We use machine learning to handle complex tasks across different application domains, in a wide array of world languages. In this talk, I will present our Wizard-of-Oz data collection framework, which allows us to collect high-quality datasets and train our models at a fraction of the cost compared to traditional data labelling approaches.

Nikola Mrkšić is the CEO and Co-Founder of PolyAI, a London-based Conversational AI company. Before starting PolyAI, Nikola worked with the Apple Siri team in Cambridge, and he was the first engineer at VocalIQ, a dialogue systems startup acquired by Apple. He did a PhD at Cambridge, working with Professor Steve Young at the Dialogue Systems Group.
