Artificial Intelligence (AI) Utility in Business Scenario

Instructed by Joshua Hong


Workshop Topic 

Artificial Intelligence - Conversational Agents / Natural Language Processing with speech and Computer vision.

Workshop Overview: 

Artificial Intelligence is one of the most popular areas in computer science and engineering. AI deals with intelligent behavior, learning, and adaptation in machines, robots and body-less computer programs. AI is everywhere : search engines use it to improve answers to queries, to recognize speech, to translate languages, email programs use it to filter spam, banks use it to predict exchange rates and stock markets, smartphones use it to recognize objects / faces / gestures / voices / music, etc etc.

The workshop provides participants with the tools and knowledge on the use of virtual assistants in many different business scenarios.

These agents or Chatbots, as they are commonly referred to use aspects of Artificial Intelligence to interact with humans and automate processes.

This workshop will provide participants with the following: 

  1. Understand the concept of virtual agents / chatbots 
  2. Understanding of the technology that enables chatbots to interact naturally with humans such as understanding natural language, speech recognition, and computer vision
  3. Hands on development of an actual integrated BOT using technology from IBM Watson
