RSVP here (https://www.meetup.com/botbuilder/events/240113100/): Great news - we're going to have our June Bot Builders' Meet up at the beautiful Deutsche Telekom Innovation Office way up on the 20th Floor at 33 New Montgomery St on June 28th from 5:30 - 8PM.
Expect outstanding views as well as the lively discussion you've come to know with the early leaders of the Bot Ecosystem.
We will dig deep into fellow Bot Builders' experiences with voice bots and get their advice on building voice interfaces and conversational design.
First panelists announced:
Marie Outtier - Founder of Aiden.ai. Passionate entrepreneur. Artificial Intelligence enthusiast. Outtier spent eight years working in digital marketing, so she knows firsthand how frustrating it can be to manage marketing data. Aiden.ai has put her expertise (i.e. how to optimize a FB marketing campaign) into algorithms.
Aiden is the artificial intelligence solution answer to marketing waste. It’s intended to feel like just another co-worker, relying on natural language processing to make the exchange feel chatty and comfortable. Aiden queries data from multiple dashboards and quickly compiles it into flashy charts, making it easy to find and digest. Marketers can meet Aiden where they are, whether that’s Slack, text message, or email.
Aiden.ai was recently selected as one of the most promising Start Ups of the Year at TechCrunch Disrupt and closed $750K in seed funding
Arun Rao - CEO and Co-Founder of Starbutter
Arun (https://www.linkedin.com/in/raoinvestor/) wants to build a world with social robots like Samantha from the movie "Her" or Councilor Albedo in the novel "Hyperion." He is immersed in machine and deep learning, natural language processing, chatbot design, relational agent architecting, social robotics, and decentralized education.
Previously, Arun was a quantitative trader and portfolio manager at PIMCO, focusing on MBS/ABS, high yield bonds, and equities related to housing/building products, industrials, financials, and software. His 11-person group used a "free-style chess" team of multiple humans and algorithms to trade billions in risky bonds. Arun has worked at three investment firms, written for the Economist, and published a book titled "A History of Silicon Valley."
Starbutter AI makes chat agents to help people pick financial products and help banks reduce marketing waste. Starbutter's bots are the most-used and highest rated voice and text bots for finance on Google Home and Amazon Alexa, along with Facebook Messenger.
