I will present CommAI, a project aiming to build the first general AI with human-level communication skills. This includes a novel type of training setup which stresses the importance of unsupervised and incremental learning. I will describe the simplest learning problems defined in this environment, and various attempts to solve these problems using classic machine learning techniques.

Tomas Mikolov is a research scientist at Facebook AI Research since May 2014. Previously he has been the member of Google Brain team, where he developed and implemented efficient algorithms for computing distributed representations of words (word2vec project). Tomas has obtained his PhD from Brno University of Technology (Czech Republic) for his work on recurrent neural network based language models (RNNLM). His long-term research goal is to develop intelligent machines capable of learning and communication with people using natural language.

Machine Learning Meetups (MLMU) is an independent platform for people interested in Machine Learning, Information Retrieval, Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision, Pattern Recognition, Data Journalism, Artificial Intelligence, Agent Systems and all the related topics. MLMU is a regular community meeting usually consisting of a talk, a discussion and a subsequent networking. At the end of the year 2016, MLMU spread also to Brno and Bratislava.
