SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Connecting people and computers through human language

Be associated with this key trend

 

Benefits of sponsoring the conference

 

Natural Language Understanding (NLU) technology—interpreting speech or text—is one of the most dynamic and rapidly developing areas of Artificial Intelligence. One key trend, for example, is “digital assistants” that converse with customers or employees to ease use of digital systems and services. A conversational platform using NLU allows a close intuitive connection with users, minimizing frustration and allowing efficient automation of many tasks. NLU technology also allows effective analysis of unstructured text or speech data.

 

The Conversational Interaction Conference emphasizes delivering usable insights on

  • The state of NLU, speech recognition, and speech synthesis technology available for commercial use

  • Tools and services that help companies use conversational technology

  • Building digital assistants and chatbots

  • Delivering conversational customers service in call centers

  • Developing conversational chatbots for web sites and apps

  • Case studies of deployments

  • Best practices for successful use of NLU technology

  • Speech and text analytics for insights into unstructured data

  • Creating a flexible conversation, rather than an overly structured and non-intuitive challenge.

Companies need help doing this. This conference discusses how they can get that help.

If you can help them, let them know by being a sponsor!

Get full value by signing up early and getting the value of publicity leading up to the conference, as well as high visibility at the conference itself, including talks if qualified proposals are received early. (With only one track and two days, talks won’t get lost in an overlarge program!) Get publicity when the web site is visited before and for a period after the conference. (We'll have updated content that attracts visitors.) Get credit in most email blasts and all press releases. And, of course, you will be a major presence at the conference itself.
