Talk details: Victoria Livshitz's talk details: Title: "Flower Genie: how to build cool and useful Alexa-enabled e-commerce applications using Dialog Flow" Abstract: In this talk, we describe how to build conversational e-commerce applications for the growing market of voice-powered AI devices using Dialog Flow. This talk demonstrates the capabilities of "Flower Genie," a teaching-oriented chatbot that can recommend a bouquet for any occasion, then take an order and deliver the flower arrangement via Alexa. We present the overall architecture of a voice application developed with Dialog Flow, including dialog management and NLU, and then discuss the finer points of testing and publishing a voice application for Alexa. About Victoria Livshitz: Victoria Livschitz founded Grid Dynamics in 2006 to bring big, new ideas — open-source, clouds, and big data — to large enterprises. Under her leadership, Grid Dynamics became a successful, fast-growing engineering IT services company known for transformative, mission-critical cloud solutions for the retail, finance, and technology sectors. In 2015, Victoria transitioned to the role of Chief Technology Officer. Prabir Nandi's talk details: Title: "Using Machine Learning to establish the 'source of truth'" Abstract: Operational data do not always reflect the source of truth, especially for non-obvious conclusions. This talk will demonstrate how Machine Learning was used on text data to derive the source of truth, which was subsequently leveraged to build prediction models that are driving millions of dollars in cost savings for AT&T. Innovative approaches were used to crowd-source (text) labeling and building a reusable NLP framework. We will conclude with an overview of sample ML/AI projects going on at AT&T's Chief Data Office, exemplifying the unwavering focus towards driving real business impact. About Prabir Nandi: Prabir Nandi is currently an Associate Director with AT&T Chief Data Office leading a team of data scientists, data engineers, and software engineers.
