  • This event has passed.

Conversational AI is one of the top researched areas and is expected to grow further in the coming years. Language models continue to advance in the field and for applications such as Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) and Neural Agent Assistant (NAA), which aim to tackle difficult challenges such as fine-tuning of models to specific downstream tasks. Join us on Wed Aug 17 @ 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM EST, and learn how state-of-the-art techniques in Conversational AI can be leveraged within your organization.

This virtual event will feature presentations by Vector sponsors, showcasing the proof of concepts (PoCs) created during Vector’s Conversational AI collaborative project. Learn how project participants have applied techniques to a wide range of use cases such as end-to-end agent assistant to understand and answer customer queries, conversational chatbot that answers finance domain questions, and neural agent assistant to help review technical reports and extract key information.
