Recently Jon Peck, a Software Engineer and Developer Evangelist of Algorithmia (https://algorithmia.com/), wrote a fun post (https://blog.algorithmia.com/building-an-emotionally-aware-chatbot/) on how to get an emotionally aware chatbot up and running in about 15 minutes.

In this hands-on micro workshop, Jon will show you how to create a chatbot using Dexter (https://rundexter.com/), a company that makes building chatbots easy and accessible. Then he'll show you how to make the chatbot emotionally aware using Algorithmia (https://algorithmia.com/), an open marketplace that hosts over 4,000 algorithms and microservices that are all available via a scalable API endpoint.

Jon will also go through some use cases covering why you would need a chatbot, especially one enabled with machine learning and provide some examples of other machine learning algorithms that work well in chatbots, but aren't covered in the demo.

Please join us for a fun evening of food and drinks provided by Algorithmia (https://algorithmia.com/) and learn how to build an emotionally intelligent chatbot!
