The ABC's of a Chatbot - with Examples


Chatbot language requires a whole other dictionary. It's recommended to be aware of such jargon in order to understand the intricacies of a chatbot. This entire blog-piece is simplified into understandable language and contains examples for you to get better clarity. I'd suggest this piece to people ailing from a non-chatbot industry as well, as too much knowledge never hurt anyone. Chatbots are now considered the fad to survive in this business world, where automation is the key to several actions.

How Artificial Intelligence Can Help with Home Builders & Developers


When most people think of Artificial Intelligence (AI) they probably think about their Amazon's Alexa, self-driving cars or Apple's Siri. However, AI can help be used for many other functions, including marketing and construction. Home builders and developers can incorporate AI in their marketing and construction efforts to impact growth in business and employee retention. The benefits of AI include improving efficiency in the workplace, solving complex problems, and even freeing up your time. Many businesses use AI-related machines or bots and other technologies today so they can use their time more wisely.

Google open-sources MT5, a multilingual model trained on over 101 languages


Not to be outdone by Facebook and Microsoft, both of whom detailed cutting-edge machine learning language algorithms in late October, Google this week open-sourced a model called MT5 that the company claims achieves state-of-the-art results on a range of English natural processing tasks tasks. MT5, a multilingual variant of Google's T5 model that was pretrained on a dataset covering 101 languages, contains between 300 million and 13 billion parameters (variables internal to the model used to make predictions) and ostensibly has enough capacity to learn over 100 languages without significant "interference" effects. The goal of multilingual AI model design is to build a model that can understand the world's over 7,000 languages. Multilingual AI models share information between similar languages, which benefits low-resource languages and allows for zero-shot language processing, or the processing of languages the model hasn't seen. As models increase in size, they require larger datasets that can be laborious and difficult to create, which has led researchers to focus on web-scraped content.

Save up to $30 on these all-new Amazon Echo devices when you buy two


As weird as it feels to have the two shopping holidays so close together, this month-and-a-half-long limbo period between Prime Day and Black Friday has actually brought us some of the best deals we've ever seen on Amazon devices. First, it was the third-generation Echo Dot from 2018 (and a bonus smart bulb). As of Oct. 26, you can score a two-pack of the all-new Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Dot with Clock, or Echo Flex for up to $30 off using some coupon codes we found nestled within each device's product page. The star of Amazon's fourth-gen series, the all-new Echo is a minimalist orb of a smart speaker equipped with a zippy AZ1 Neural Edge processor, a Zigbee smart home hub, and an LED ring light (located on its base). Mashable hasn't gotten a chance to review it yet, but our friends over at PCMag say its audio quality is "impressive" considering its size and price point (which was one of the reasons they gave it an Editor's Choice Award).

How RPA differs from conversational AI, and the benefits of both


While RPA is geared more toward backend automation, conversational AI lends itself to automating human-facing and more personalized interactions. But where does backend process automation meet conversation-driven automation? RPA involves the management of rigid, predictable processes, where there is no ambiguity about the request, which contrasts with conversational AI, where user intent dictates which tasks are undertaken in response to a request. Chatbots or digital assistants use messaging interfaces, or voice control, to have a conversational interaction. The fluidity of conversation requires natural language processing (NLP) automation to be highly flexible, so that the intent is correctly interpreted and the right tasks are undertaken to resolve the request.

Creating a Chatbot for Healthcare in React Native using Dialogflow


A chatbot is a piece of software that helps in conducting a conversation through voice based or textual methods. Chatbots offer companies new opportunities to improve the customer engagement process and operational efficiency by reducing the typical cost of customer service. Dialogflow (previously known as API.AI) is a Natural Language Processing (NLP) platform which can be greatly helpful to build conversational applications for a company's customers in various languages and also across multiple platforms. Dialogflow enables developers to create text-based and voice conversation interfaces for responding to customer queries in different languages. Navigate to console in the official website.

"With the emergence of the Internet it has become easy and quick for anyone who creates something to get their work to the target audience. Now it takes only a few minutes for our work to have universal reach. The Internet comes not only accompanied by advantages. As everything in life it has its is advantages and entails of attention. As it provides quick reach, it also allows for copying and misusing the works a creator makes available. In our work we will address Intellectual Property in the national context, of which we will carry out a scientific study, analyzing how its protection is done and whether there is concern from both the competent authorities and our artists and authors.

Hunter Douglas Duette PowerView smart shade review: Ultimate luxury, sophistication, and privacy


The primary appeal of motorized top-down/bottom-up shades is their ability to open and close in two directions: They can open by dropping the top of the shade down from the window's head to the sill, and by lifting the bottom of the shade up from the sill to the head. But Hunter Douglas couldn't justify the lofty price tag of its Duette with PowerView Automation shades unless they were also the most luxurious and innovative shades we've reviewed to date. Top-down/bottom-up shades are a fantastic option because they enhance privacy without completely blocking light from entering the room. If your window faces a busy street, you can lower the shade down from the top to admit light without exposing your room to a view from the street. Or you can drop the top of the shade down in the early morning, so the room is bathed in morning sunlight without impeding your ability to move about the room freely--anyone looking toward your window will only be able to as much of you as you wish to expose. And since these are motorized smart shades, you can create automated schedules to reposition the shades as many times each day and night that you'd care to program, including at sunrise and sunset.

Hearing aid that tracks brain and body health


Hearing aid maker Starkey Hearing Technologies has introduced Livio AI – the first device to track physical activity and cognitive health. Livio AI hearing aid tracks brain and body health, has a natural user interface with tap control, language translation and advanced environmental detection using integrated sensors and Artificial Intelligence (AI). The new Hearing Reality technology provides as much as 50 per cent reduction in noisy environments, significant reduced listening effort, and newly enhanced clarity of speech, while the use of AI and integrated sensors enabled it to optimise the hearing experience. "What makes today a pivotal moment in the hearing industry, is that with Livio AI, we have transformed a single-use device into the world's first multi-purpose hearing aid, a Healthable with integrated sensors and artificial intelligence. Livio AI is so much more than just a hearing aid, it is a gateway to better health and wellness," Starkey Hearing Technologies President Brandon Sawalich said.
