    EP13: A Guide to AI Chatbots

    EP13: A Guide to AI Chatbots

    How does AI even work? What is NLP? LUIS? Dialogflow? Watson? Lex? What is machine learning? What about IOT?

    Once you get beyond the simple rule-based chatbot, things get interesting. And talented guys like Andy Dharmani of ako.ai get busy.

    In this episode of The Conversologist Podcast, Jam Mayer talks to Conversologie’s tech partner Andy about chatbots, AI, NLP, intent, entities, digital humans and more. 

    This conversation was lifted from a February 2019 webinar on AI chatbots. 99% of the conversation is self explanatory, but you may wish to view the webinar slides also.

    EP11: Now We're Talking! Voice Is The New Buzz

    EP11: Now We're Talking! Voice Is The New Buzz

    When Apple released its voice interface in late 2011, watching somebody shouting at their phone repeatedly was good comic relief. Many of us would wait for a quiet moment alone before daring to ask our phone a question.

    Today, via the likes of Alexa and Siri, more and more of us are confidently using voice as our UI. Searching, calling, composing and sending messages, an interface that is arguably the most natural we have.

    More than half of India’s Internet users are doing it. Voice search is seeing massive growth in Asia - India, China, and Indonesia being the top three. And importantly, voice is used more by the younger generation: under 35s are leading the change.

    Why should we be listening to the talk about voice? What are the threats? What are the opportunities? What does it mean for the UX writer or chatbot developer?

    In this episode Rew Shearer and Jam Mayer touch on the topic. And why not? Podcast is the new blog. 🙂
