This workshop in Barcelona on the 15th of February, 2017 focuses on Innovation through Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language. There are many misconceptions around AI. For example, the idea that only the technology giants can deal with the problem of delivering artificially intelligent solutions; and that attempting to address it yourself is an unrealistic fantasy. Yet customers and consumers are already becoming immersed in artificial intelligence in their personal lives, from their smartphones to their smart homes, and are fast coming to expect intelligent and capable AI-based solutions in their business dealings as well. How will enterprises solve this and enable themselves to survive and thrive in the AI economy? Artificial Solutions is an innovator in AI-based technologies, delivering advanced, game-changing Natural Language Interaction solutions for enterprises. As the industry-leading experts, we understand the real-world challenges and problems facing businesses, and are inviting enterprises to have a 1-to-1 discussion about innovation through Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language.
The Chatbots & Digital Assistants Conference focuses on the varied life of an intelligent, capable and humanlike chatbot. Siri might have changed people’s perception of what a chatbot can do, but setting reminders or finding out about the weather only scratches the surface of artificially intelligent applications. Digital assistants now go far beyond superficial interaction. For enterprises they can be your best sales person, your favourite market researcher, the technician that never loses their patience no matter how often they explain the same thing to the same person. To the consumer they are the guardian to in-home automation, the helpful in-car passenger, the friend that knows you’ve had a bad day and orders your favourite take-out. This presentation takes you on a journey through different industries, devices and services and demonstrates the many varied ways global companies are using conversational voice technology. Andy Peart, CMSO will be presenting his keynote speech ‘The varied life of an intelligent, capable and humanlike chatbot’. The conference will take place in Stockholm on February 14, 2017.
