We are the organizers that recruited 60 companies and academias to present their machine learning and data science use cases and research at the SVML meetup and grew it from 800 to 7800 registered members. We plan to continue to do so here at "Bay Area Machine Learning" and further our objective of giving the community access and insights to this most interesting subfield of computer science. We want to make this a very open and inclusive effort driven by the community. We welcome anyone who wishes to help organize and recruit speakers. So join us, either as a member or a co-organizer.
Smart speakers and messaging apps are increasing in popularity due to their convenience, intuitive usage, and new user experiences. Companies are racing to develop voice interfaces and AI technologies in order to utilize smart speakers and messaging platforms as a sales channel.
We are introducing Grid Genie, a completely open source, multi-device, conversational commerce platform. With this technology, we can help you engineer a powerful platform to combine your Alexa skills, Google actions, and Facebook Messenger into a single seamless experience.
