Inside Story of Building AI and Tech For Real Humans

Inside Story of Building AI & Tech For Real Humans


We hear new breakthroughs in AI & tech everyday. In the last few years alone we’ve heard about machines winning video games and even reaching human parity for speech, reading, object recognition, and translation in controlled tests. But while we are excited about these advancements, we seldom hear about how we really got here and where do we think we can really go over the next few years. This panel will draw from experts who will share some of the untold stories of building assistants, personas, & AI. What we learned from people in surprising places like Rap Battles in Central China, Favelas in Brazil, & hackers around the world. The cool ideas and the prototypes that didn’t work at all but did so in surprising, insightful and exciting ways that help us chart where AI will go next.
