Deep Learning Algorithms are Changing the Future. Are You Missing Out?


Until recently, deep learning alluded to the big names in tech such as Amazon, Facebook, and Google as having a clear use for these tools. Whilst these are some of the key players in AI and DL implementation, there are also huge advantages for their applications in businesses and everyday enterprises.

AI Assistants
Siri, Alexa, Cortana and Google Assistant may be known as ‘The Big Four’, but there are many other companies working on AI assistants, pushing boundaries in natural language processing (NLP) to create chatbots and assistants that form more personalised, emotional connections with the user.

This September, we will hear from Ann Hsu, Assistant Professor at University of London who will discuss her research in the automation of natural language conversations that can form more meaningful relationships to meet the customer's needs. By conversing in this manner, systems can provide behaviour change support by delivering in-the-moment help and elevating user self-awareness, and helping users to feel more connected to the customer service provider.

Other confirmed speakers include Vijay Ramakrishnan, MindMeld (Cisco); Alan Nichol, Rasa; Alex Fawcett, Sage; and more.

Deep Learning
Most deep learning algorithms today need vast amounts of data, with thousands (or more!) of labeled examples. At the Deep Learning Summit we will hear how companies are leveraging their data to optimise their results, as well as learning about implementing semi-supervised and unsupervised learning algorithms. Last year at the DL Summit in London in a fireside chat with Ben Medlock, founder of SwiftKey, we heard about how the keyboard app is implementing deep learning and natural language processing to perfect its model.
