Carin Meier will talk on:
How to Train Your Computer to Talk To You
Every day brings a new story or movie about how the future will be ruled by Artificial Intelligence. How far are we away from discovering Skynet anyway? This talk will take us on a mini adventure in AI and machine learning with Clojure. We’ll take a look at something that is pretty easy for humans to do: telling the difference between a question, statement, or an LOL in some chat text. What seems deceptively easy, becomes a bit harder when you take away punctuation marks. We’ll soon find ourselves on the twisty road of natural language processing, machine learning, and Clojure proto chat bots.
