The major AI trend of conversing with computers

in human language through text or voice

and analyzing unstructured voice or text databases


Computers can now deal with human language—speech or text. Recent advances in Natural Language Understanding (NLU) technology have passed the “tipping point” allowing rapid improvement in the core technology and applications. ​NLU allows automated conversations with customers or employees to deliver information or take action. It can improve customer service, marketing, employee efficiency, and more. NLU technology can also analyze unstructured voice, video, or text files to provide deep insights.

The Conversational Interaction Conference emphasizes delivering usable insights on

  •  The state of the underlying NLU and speech recognition technology available for commercial use

  •  Tools and services that help companies use conversational technology

  •  Case studies of deployments

  •  Best practices for successful use of NLU technology

The CI Conference is known for delivering exciting and useful insights, friendly networking, and high-quality talks.
