This first byte sized event on February 15th at the Bradfield Centre will cover real world examples of deploying commercial machine learning; examining the user experience aspects of AI, as well as exploring closed source tools.
With AI in the news almost every day now, there is an urgent need for us all to become better informed, and to be able to separate the hype from reality for the benefit of the businesses we represent.
We are delighted to announce our speakers for this event are:
Chatbots? garbage in garbage out.
Leo Poll, Akendi
The last 5 years have been nothing short of a revolution in speech, natural language interpretation and AI. All the tools are there (e.g. IBM Watson) to get a chatbot up and running quickly. However, embedding common sense as well as some form of social skills to a chatbot is not a quick and easy job. During this talk Leo Poll will share Akendi's experience with developing a chatbot that was intended to be a more accessible alternative to our FAQ's on our website (which nobody reads). The internal code name for this project was 'Botterik' which is Dutch for somebody who is a bit short and rude. Ensuring that Akendi's chatbot no longer deserved this nickname is not an easy and quick job despite the effectiveness of the AI toolkit.
Where can I park my car?
Mary-Ann Claridge, Founder & Lead Data Scientist, Mandrel Systems, supported by Phil Claridge, Mandrel Systems
Real world end-to-end examples of machine learning using Smart City data. We will demonstrate where you might want to try and park your car in Cambridge. From raw data to working application in under 20 min? As part of the demonstration we will discuss major issues we find in introducing AI and ML to commercial consulting customers. This session is a counterpoint to the previous AI/Open source SIG event as some of the tools showcased will be closed source (free to use) that have significant consulting revenue opportunity.
