Chat as an interface" is the next big step in making software accessible. People love using messaging apps like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Slack. This group is about how to design and develop products for these platforms using AI, machine learning and natural language processing. Founders are in the early days of the "bot economy.
Organisers from Berlin are thrilled to bring "bots" over from Berlin to Zurich for the first time! They have teamed up with Google Engineering to host an evening full of exciting talks about AI, machine learning and natural language processing. Additionally, local startups will have the chance to present their bots. The intended audience is people that want to build bots so the talks will be quite technical but non-tech people are welcome as well.
