Announcing the BootstrapLabs Applied AI Insiders Series

During our May Applied AI Insiders Series event, we will explore practical ways AI is being applied to different Human/Computer interfaces, moving us beyond touch and closer to how we interact with other humans – using speech, gestures and even body language.

This event is INVITE ONLY. If you did not receive an invitation you can request one below.

Google Duplex: An AI System for Accomplishing Real-World Tasks Over the Phone

A long-standing goal of human-computer interaction has been to enable people to have a natural conversation with computers, as they would with each other. In recent years, we have witnessed a revolution in the ability of computers to understand and to generate natural speech, especially with the application of deep neural networks. Read more.

10 Promising AI Applications in Health Care

There’s a lot of excitement right now about how artificial intelligence (AI) is going to change health care. And many AI technologies are cropping up to help people streamline administrative and clinical health care processes.

Why It Pays To Be An Early Adopter Of AI

One reason they’re disadvantaging themselves is that AI is a process, not a one-off technology solution. AI applications are only as good as the data that is fed to them over time, and as a result, the true gains, such as higher revenue, lower customer churn and more productive staff, take time to materialize. Read more.

Forget the space race, the AI race is just beginning

The United States and China currently dominate the world of artificial intelligence, but used very different approaches to get there. While the US’s academic system has generated and incubated the research that made today’s AI possible, China’s government has pledged billions in funding and offered the technology its full-throated support. Read more.
