BehindTheScenes - Salesforce Voice Assistant
Using Deep Learning technology, we intend to transform unstructured data like voice and text to more structured data which empowers users to execute actions. This is a huge problem statement in itself even if one company was to build an assistant to interact with their organization, but it is even more challenging to build this as a platform while being agnostic of underlying details.
Level of expertise to benefit from the session: It is appreciated for the audience to have some amount of technical knowledge as it would entail different parts required to build such an assistant.
