A deep dive into the future of natural language understanding systems with ex-Alexa and current Head of AI at Got It AI, Chandra Khatri
Presented by Deepgram
Deepgram is a Speech Company whose goal is to have every voice heard and understood. We have revolutionized speech-to-text (STT) with an End-to-End Deep Learning platform. This AI architectural advantage means you don’t have to compromise on speed, accuracy, scalability, or cost to build the next big idea in voice. Our easy-to-use SDKs and APIs allow developers to quickly test and embed our STT solution into their voice products. For more information, visit:
Transformer-based NLU and the future of NLU systems
Chandra Khatri is the Head of AI at emerging startup, Got It AI. He joins us to share the future of NLU systems and how transformer-based models (explained in detail for the layperson) are heralding a new line of capabilities, making a new kind of customer experience possible.
Chandra Khatri is one of the leading experts in the field of Conversational AI and Multi-modal AI. Currently, he is the Chief Scientist and Head of AI at Got It AI wherein his team is building one of the first Autonomous Conversational AI systems.
