10 August 2018

Digital AI Summit

Professor Phil Cohen, Director of the Laboratory for Dialogue Research, at Monash University, Faculty of Information Technology, will be a keynote speaker at the Digital A.I Summit, in Melbourne on August 28, 2018.

He will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of current "conversational A.I" technology, which is used in today's digital assistants (e.g., Apple Computer's Siri, Google's  Google Now, IBM's Watson, and Microsoft's Cortana, etc.), as well as for general classes of applications such as customer service.

He will provide a way forward that promises to overcome their limitations to build systems that can participate in flexible, collaborative dialogues that help users to achieve their goals.

The Digital A.I Summit is Australia’s premier event for bringing together industry leaders and provides a collection of exclusive keynotes and expert panels explaining AI and how it is rapidly transforming many Australian workplaces to significantly improve their productivity.

The Digital A.I Summit is a one-day conference and is run in conjunction with the Victorian Government’s Digital Innovation Festival.
