Taking Chatbots by Storm
Some say 2017 is the year of chatbots, the coming of age of AI and NLP. We will go beyond the hype and talk about real world usecases within financial services where AI and chatbots have an important role to play. We will have a code walkthrough and demo of a common financial service usecase using voice & text chatbot, using tools like Amazon Alexa and api.ai. This will cover the aspects of intent design, security and performance. We will then build an AI prediction model using the BigML tool. You will walk away with an overall understanding of chatbots & tools to build them.
