It Takes a Village to Raise a Bot

31 Aug 2018 11:0012:00, Folium

Your job isn't going anywhere. You do not need to be a machine learning engineer to work with AI. Former IBM Watson designer Dezzie Garcia takes you through the journey of designing effective ways for people to be able to build their chatbots, from the assumption that engineering is at the center of the work. Maybe you'll be surprised, or maybe you won't–that's good! This talk is intended to get audience members to reflect on how their roles have evolved in the industry, and how this may be happening again.
