Advancing the State of the Art in Conversational AI for all Developers
Most people think of chatbots and voice assistants as either dumb or super smart (if they’ve never tried one :) ). Based on working with hundreds of developers in creating assistants, Rasa believes there are multiple levels of assistants – in fact, 5 levels of AI assistants. This talk discusses challenges when trying to advance from a simple to an advanced assistant, recent advances in NLP and machine learning research, and provides hands-on advice on how to setup in-house teams.
Alex Weidauer is co-founder and CEO of Rasa, provider of the standard infrastructure layer for conversational AI, which supplies the tools necessary to build better, more resilient contextual assistants. With over 1.5M+ downloads since launch, Rasa Open Source is loved by developers worldwide, with a friendly, fast-growing community learning from each other and working together to make better text- and voice-based AI assistants. Alex studied Computer Science and Management, has worked for McKinsey and various tech startups before. Alex was recently on Forbes’ 30 under 30 list.
